Oh I just saw this. Makes my heart sad. Patty and Tommy were our childhood neighbors. Their folks were friends with our folks. In fact Helen took care of me at times when I was a baby!

We would have street parades that I have on home movies and the Eaton kids are in them!

A kiss to heaven for Patty and a huge hug to all that lost so much with her passing.

Loss is so hard but there is so much strength in love.

Fond memories of you all.

I am sorry to hear of Patty’s passing. She was a great friend. I was out of town all of November and tried to reach her during December.

Tom if you could call me I would love to chat a minute. You may remember my maiden name of loihl. I had just been up to see her a couple times last fall and knew there were some problems going on. Please call at 500-389-1675. We were going to try to get together again in December. I am so sorry , she had a rough life but a super attitude! Sending my love —thank you!! Hope to talk soon—
