    Patti will be dearly missed sitting around the campfire. Life sucks sometimes and this is one of those times. Patti was a real trooper with all she put with fighting this terrible cancer. How we can come up with a vaccine in less than a year for Covid, but cannot cure cancer is beyond me.

    As an old friend of you both I was not aware of Patti’s condition. I’m so sorry to hear of her passing. I can’t imagine what life will be like having lost someone as near and dear. I’m sure Patti put up a fight till the end and she probably told you and the family that life goes on and you need to live it. Old friend I can only send you my condolences but if there is anything I could do for you please feel free to reach out. If you need contact info just message me. Love you man
