    I am very saddened to hear about the death of my sister Patricia. Oh, the childhood memories.
    In fact, all the memories of my sister will be cherished forever. I am so grateful, that I got to spend time with her and the rest of my family in the fall of last year. She will be in my thoughts and prayers, until we hopefully meet again.
