  • So sorry for the loss of a very special friend. Patty, Bobby, my husband Joe and I had some great times together as neighbors in Chesapeake, Va. We were both having babies at the same time, and we spent so much time together comparing notes about babies, housekeeping and both learning how to make ends meet with very few resources. RIP Patty. I will miss you and our talks together. I know you are with Bobby now and we will meet again on the other side when I join my Joe. My condolences to all the family.
