Patty is my cousin, her mother and my grand mother are sisters, Mary and Christena. They lived on the same street. We played together every day with the " gang" and she was one if the littlest sweetest girls. Our other cousins lived right around the corner. Those truly were" the good old days!" Ever smiling when i would go visit here in our older years even though she had many aggravating health issues. She renovated her parents house and it was a lovely home. Fly with the angels, sweet cousin. I will miss you. Love, Karen Carlisle Barton
