You lit up the neighbourhood in Connecticut. I miss you playing your bagpipes - cos you were good and they always sounded great. I enjoyed being your neighbour and spending time with the family, Jack, Dylan and Dermot too. Skiing in winter, walks in the woods with Jack, Dylan and Dermot and of course Hudson ... taking Jack and Dylan - teaching them how to water ski nearby.
You lit up the people around you. Gone way too soon. Come back soon ... I know you will. In the meantime - take care. It would be wonderful for either Jack or Dylan, preferrably both and Dermot would stay in contact. My love to them, for surely, they mourn your passing but have only great memories of your life.
Patty was a dear friend from college. She was one of the most dynamic people I've ever met. She always lit up a room with her smile and energy. I thought there was nothing she couldn't do. I will miss her terribly.
