  3. While I am sad it was only within the last year and Mom’s illness I really touched base with you again, thank-you for the conversation,memories,and laughs we shared. I will hold tight to them until we meet again. Most important of all thank-you (and Claudia) for all the good times, laughs, and love you shared with Mom over the past few years; in both her good times and bad they meant more to her than I think you’d ever know! You’ve got a heck of a lot of good people waiting on you up there, so I won’t keep you. I love and will miss you Uncle Pat!
