I hope that Patty, Neil, Brenda, Sofie, Tom, and all the other angels are together in heaven eating and drinking everything they want to. I also pray that they are looking down on all of us.

I just reread her last two post on May 21 and 22. She was going to do so much. I can't belive this happened so quickly, but better this way than a long lingering painful death. May she rest in peace. We will miss you Patty. My deepest sympathy to your friends and family.

Take care,
Eileen

I am saddened to hear the news of Patty. Feared the worst when her last post was on the 22 May and the last email I sent her with cyber flowers on the 25th May went unanswered
As many others I will miss her and take consolation that she is now at peace.
I understand now why we call this a family as I feel like I have lost a sister.

Patti I am having trouble swallowing that you are gone. We talked so much and I felt really close to you like most of us here. It was facebook that assisted me to put your face with your name. I will miss you and think of you fondly in the blooming flowers and remember your garden!!! I am also giving all the dogs in this house an extra treat for you...Man this is really hard...Heaven has definately gained a bright angel.. I will miss you dearly

Patty and i exchanged a few private e - mails.She contacted me when her recurrance was diagnosed and asked me what happened with Rob during his last weeks.She was scared,but wanted to know how things might pan out.As with so many here,the way in which she would die was on her mind.Hard as this is to comprehend,i for one am thankful that she never had to dwell on the subject for too long,and fate snuck up on her when she least expected it.This is the last message i got from her a few days ago

[quote] want to express my gratitude for your insight and experience that you have shared with me. I know that it can not be easy to relive what you went through and I really appreciate the fact that you have shared woth me.

I have stomped my feet and had my scan today and on Weds I meet with the Oncologist to go over everything and see if there is anything that can be done for me.

So, so sad and also so scarey for us starting out on this journey. At least she didn't linger and suffer for long. Prayers to her friends and family on such a sad loss.
