You have my sympathy in the loss of your Mom. We have good memories of the get togethers after basketball games. Pat was a great cook. Due to the covid, I will not be attending, but my prayers are for you. You are a great family.

Dear family,

I have known Pat for almost 30 years, Dwayne and I bought their house when we moved to Watertown. We had also lived in Beresford so we knew several of their friends even though they didn’t live there the same time that we did. So we had some common ground with them and we enjoyed getting together. I always enjoyed birthday dinners and coffee with Pat. We even had visits in Hawarden after I moved there and she would visit Rita. The last time I saw Pat was at lunch at Minerva’s with our Watertown friends a few years ago.
I’m so very sorry for your loss, she was so proud of her family! You will miss her presence but you have many loving memories to cherish. I wish I could come to the funeral but because of COVID I better stay home. I will be thinking and praying for you.
