  7. Dear Family,
    We just wanted you to know how much we loved Mrs. Pat. We began renting from Mrs. Pat just after my Mom passed away, and she made us feel right at home at a time when my emotions were still quite raw. She was always so kind and generous, with a smile on her face. The love she had for her family, especially her grandkids, was evident in all she did! Thank you for sharing her with us! She will be missed!
