Condolence & Memory Journal

To George and children, I am distraught to learn of Patsy's death. We go so far back in childhood and on into adulthood. Although we lost touch for many years, Patsy was so often in my thoughts. We lived directly across the street from each other growing up, and were rarely apart...........we considered that the worst punishment. I am so sorry that we lost touch. Please accept my deepest sympathy.

I just want to tell the world that I miss my mom so much already. She was absolutely the most generous, creative, intelligent, and loving woman of all time. I am going to miss laughing with her, telling her my crazy adventures and stories, cooking with her, shopping with her, going to lunch with her, walking in the yard with her, planting flowers with her, going on trips with her, watching movies with her, sitting in the swing with her and about a million more things we used to do. Mom I love you with all my heart and mind and I know that you are in peace now, free of pain. I love you forever!!!!
