I love you my Patti Wack. Thank you for always taking the time and making the trip to come see me, spend time with me, and play endless hours of cards and pretty pretty princess with me. Our times together will never be forgotten. You were my moms best friend, but I always felt the love come strong from you. Seeing you walking around looking for me at my college graduation and the special note you gave me ment the world to me and I'll keep it forever. Your God son will always know the person you were. I'm so glad we got to spend a special meal together reminiscing and talking about your family and catching up. Love your Little Bit
