  • Dear Tom, Wendy, Steve, Terry & Families,

    I am very thankful for the wonderful time that Andy & I were able to spend with Pat & Tom the past few years – whether working in the garden and flowers or just sitting and talking about current and past experiences and family growing up. She was such a wonderful caring person – now she is out of pain and in a better place – and we are all blessed to have her as a special guardian angel.

    Love, Lori
