So very sorry to read about aunt pat I loved her and she was there when my mother died and I was in the darkest moment in my life. She had so much empathy for me .I will never forget her kindness for me at that time. She was always up beat and willing to help anybody in need. Janet reminds me that she was there to help Janet comfort and aid my sister Julie when Julie was in need.during her fight with M.S. Love Clark and Jan Rose
