    I'm so sorry to hear of the passing of Ms. Pat. Andy B. and I used to help her with her landscaping. We also had a love for sharing funny stories from days gone by. We laughed so hard our sides hurt. Oh the stuff we'd laugh about. I really enjoyed her company. She's going to be missed. Rest in peace, Sis. Pat. A beautiful soul has left us.
