  • Having only known Patricia, or “Mitzuki” as I knew her by for such a short amount of time, I can truly say that to know Patricia was one of the greatest honors of my entire life. I’ll forever miss her witty banter when on a call with her husband. We’ll take care of pupper for you down here!

    With Love,

  • I will miss Patty very much, and I hope to think of her in the best regards as she helped to enlighten me on my own path and to accept me for who I was and need to be.
