Help bring Patty home

On Sunday, March 25th, my mother suddenly and unexpectedly passed away. She meant the world to me and my family, and we are still trying and struggling to process this.

Patty left an impression on absolutely everyone she met. If you met her,
you didn't soon forget her. She was kind and loving, and she marched to the beat of her own drum. She leaves behind me, my bother Charles, her loving partner of 26 years, John, and my grandmother Mary. She had been living with John and my grandmother in Florida at the time of her death.

Unfortunately, Patty leaving us has left more than just a hole in our hearts. It has left us with a financial burden that we are all struggling to meet, and, more importantly, it has left John and my grandmother without a crucial  source of income.

We are asking for $4000 to help cover some of the expenses that come with losing a loved one so suddenly and to fly John and my mother's remains back to PA for a memorial service. Any money not used for either of those purposes will go to John and my grandmother to help ease their financial hardship.

Any and all contributions are greatly appreciated. Although we are grieving, we thank you all from the bottom of our hearts for the love you showed Patty throughout her life.
