LOST A GOOD FRIEND
So sad to hear of Aunt Patsy’s passing she was a Gem. When I first moved to Chicago she sent me care packages of fun little games and things I would enjoy. I’ll never forget her kindness or the nickname she adorned me with: Creep she affectionately called me because of all the hair I had when I was born 🙂
I’m so sorry to hear …I loved both Patsy and Nick so much. She was like a mom to me.I worked at Cambridge House of Swansea.. When I had down time, I loved sitting and talking with Patsy… She always checked up on me even after I left Cambridge House..She always knew I was a call away if she.needed anything.. even if it meant meeting the two of them at the hospital when Nick was worried about his pacer being adjusted..
She was like a mother to me.. and she would always ask about my daughters the ( nun) and the ( nurse)
Lots of love and prayers to you Soti she loved and adored you so much.. you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers
SOTI AND FAMILY SO SORRY FOR YOUR LOSS, WE LOST AN OLD FRIEND, MAY HER MEMORY BE ETERNAL, SHE WILL BE SADLY MISS.
Soti, So many memories of Patsy and Nick. My sympathies to you and your family.
