Patty, you and your family are certainly in our thoughts and prayers. She led a good, active life and raised some wonderful kids....which made many happy memories for you to cherish! May God be with you as you go through these days of letting go. I'm sure Jim is there for you to lean on, as always, and so is your awesome family. Share those memories of her knowing she is in her heavenly home with her loved ones that went before her and our almighty, loving GOD! Sending love and hugs to you, my friend!
