Sending our sincere sympathies to Patrick, Kathy and David. It is always hard to lose a parent, but the memories keep them alive in our hearts and our lives. The things that she taught you and the sayings she used remain. At least I know that I have those "Mom always said . . . . " that often pop up in my mind. Sending love and Hugs.
Velma and Gary.
