Goodbye my love,, we will meet again another day ..  Love you ,,   Chuck

Pat and I shared a love of art, especially watercolors, and she was a dear friend for the past ten years. I will miss her quick wit and her infectious smile. She shared her deep love of family and I know how much she will be missed by them. She will always hold a special place in my heart.
