Ron, Craig, Mark, and Chris, My heart is absolutely breaking for you. This is hard, hard pain. Especially losing someone as unique and wonderful as Pat/your mom. I had a good, long cry when I heard the news. I'll miss her laugh! I wish I had the words to comfort you during this incredibly difficult time. I just know that she loved the four of you so, so much. Family was so important to her. You boys won the Mom Lottery. I did, as well. We were incredibly lucky to have such fabulous moms. Big hugs to all of you. I'll be thinking of you. Susie
