    I haven’t seen Patty for a while but we kept in contact on Facebook. Her positive outlook and loving comments will be greatly missed. I was so sad to see that she had passed away even though I knew she was struggling with serious health issues. My heart aches for her husband Steve and for her daughters that she loved so much: i’ve never met them but from her photos and posts, it was clear they were her pride and joy. I know Patty’s siblings are also grieving because she was an exceptional sister. I would love to attend her memorial service on Sunday but I am out of town caring for my grandsons in Iowa. My mom Darlene Anderson and my brother Jeff Anderson are planning on being there. I am so very sorry for her family and friends. She was and is now an angel.
