"Patsy" was truly one of the kindest souls I've ever known and I'm so grateful to have been close to her for so many years. I remember those crabbing trips vividly and boy did she know her Phillies! We always had so much fun together because of her kind, funny, and wise-cracking personality. There was never a time without laughter when she was in the room, sometimes at her expense of course, but she was always a good sport. She had a smile that would light up a room and giggle that was contagious. I will forever miss her presence in our lives. Rest in peace. Love and miss you always, Tricia, Scott, and Makena
