    So sorry for your loss. Hanging out at the Mispagels was always a good place to be. I remember seeing Patty driving in her old T-Bird if I recall. May God give you strength in this difficult time.

    I’m so sorry for you guys. I have such fond memories of Patty. I remember getting to go to her softball games and riding around in her pink Cadillac (I think that is what it was). You have had a hard time of it lately. I’m so sorry. Prayers for you in your time of loss.
