    So many wonderful memories growing up with Aunt Patty (as my family called her) in them. I remember her beloved monkey, Bitsy- (lol); days at pool on Friendly Lane or on the sound at Aunt Betty/Uncle Frank’s or just visiting her at her house So many really good times. I will so miss her laugh! She was always so loving to us and so much fun to be around yet still was true to her sometimes feisty self. (It’s hereditary). I will always cherish these memories. She was one of my favs and always will be. I Love you, Aunt Patty- you RIP now. ♥️ Uncle Billy, Frankie, Bev and families: you’re all in my prayers and deep in my heart. She will be missed! She was one of a kind!
