    I am so incredibly sorry for your loss. It is such a blessing that you were able to spend so much quality time together. I know it made Patty and Mikes days a bit brighter. They so appreciated your time, help and laughter. I hope you take comfort in knowing that the bond you and Patty shared, can never be broken, and that the memories of those we love remain in our hearts forever. Patty was an incredibly strong woman and fought such a long, tough, battle. Heaven gained an angel, may she Rest In Peace. I am here for you.
    Hugs snd much love.
    Sara and family

  3. My precious Aunt Patty was my 2nd Mom, best friend & confidante! She told me many things about my childhood & my Mom’s younger years & we would just sit together & laugh! I would show her funny YouTube videos and I thought we would die laughing. I visited her & her Fiancé Mike Borgheiinck often and what a beautiful love story they had. Mike is the most loving & caring person and the tender care he showed her was amazing! He had just bought her a new keyboard & she was planning on learning some new songs but she didn’t get the chance to play it one time. She was very funny, strong, brave & lived with such grace until she could not fight any longer. I miss her so much already! When you told her that you love her, she would always say “I love you bigger” & before she left us those were the last words she said to me & I will treasure that memory forever with our precious love in my heart! So sad you’re not with us here but also happy you are at peace! I now have another beautiful guardian Angel & I know you’re watching over us! You are now free to dance with the stars! Miss you sweetheart!
