To Patti's family,
I am so sorry for your loss. I went to high school "62" and nursing school "65" with Patti. We were very close and kept in touch after school, but in the last few years I lost contact with her. Patti was a wonderful person and nurse. We had a lot of fun together especially in nursing school. Patti and I and two other classmate drove over night to the beach in NJ in her little car for a day! Patti was loved by all of our classmates and will be missed. I will always have fond memories of her. Again, I am so sorry and I pray that you all will find comfort in your memories. Susann
