Condolences & Memories (2 entries)

  • My good friend and maid of honor Patti. My fellow shopper and superb dresser( fromLittle Rock, Arkansas ) . We were quite the pair back then. A couple of only children, long and lean and into fashion. You so more than I. I always was just a little jealous of the relationship you had with your parents. You were so close. You would do things together. I didn't know your dad that well, but I could see how much you truly loved him. I haven't seen you for many years, but I still think about you and wonder how you are doing. My heart goes out to you and your mom. I just lost my mom this June. She was 96. Doesn't matter how old they are , or what condition they are in, a loss of a loved one is still a heartfelt loss. Our deepest sympathy 🙏. Love Donna, Mike,Chris,and Matthew MacNeil - Posted by: Donna MacNeil (Friend of Patti ) on: Nov 11, 2022
