    Pat, I think about you often and always with love. We were just through Colfax this past week and I thought about always stopping in to see you and chat with you a while…the Chatter Box, indeed! I will continue to pray for you and your family as you go through the next part of this life’s journey. May God bring you comfort, peace and good health. Love, prayers and HUGS, always.

    To Aunt Patty and family
    My thoughts are with you all at this time, I’m not there physically, but in spirit, to assure you of strength and peace, during this moment in time. But rest assured, to be absent from the body, is to be present with the Lord, to be reunited once again with those we love and miss, thanks to the sacrifice of the cross. May God’s peace and strength be with all at this time. Keith

    Aunt Pat I was so sorry to hear Uncle Fred had passed away. He will be missed. I remember moving back from Florida in 1983, I was going into liquor store by grandma house and Joe and Fred had just came out. Had not seen either one of them in years Fred grabbed me in a head lock and gave burns on top of my head with his knuckles. Donnie and Travis 7 and 8 years old, my kids jump out of my car and jumped on both of them it was so funny. He was always the funny uncle. Cathy Abston (Helen’s Daughter)
