“If I could save time in a bottle

The first thing that I’d like to do

Is to save every day till eternity passes away

Just to spend them with you”

I loved Grandma Pat very much. She was our adopted Grandma and made my boys feel special. She helped me and my youngest son Calvin through a difficult time. I had many long talks with Grandma Pat and she was so proud of her family. I know all about Sabrina and Julian's fish and chips restaurant and beautiful yard and dogs. I know how good Carrie is with computers and loves People magazine. I know how handy Joe is. I know how smart Rachel is at her job. How Jen and Michelle went to Chapman and UCLA. And of course my friend Natalie she loved you and your mom so very much. She talked nonstop about your kids and she bragged about all the things you did for her. Taking her places, visiting her and calling her. I just wanted you all to know during this difficult time that She was always always sharing stories about her family with me. She sure did love you!! With Love Katie (Natalie's friend)
