    To the family of MS. Patty, thats who she was to me and my husband. This was one of the sweetest ladies you could ever know. I so much enjoyed seeing her at L Dees resturant and having our little talks and hugs. And if it was your Birthday, watch out because she was going to sing to you. But little did i know she had a great voice. We both will miss that and miss MS. Patty. Kent and Shelia Chirgwin
