To Pat’s family and friends…..
My mom…Dorothy Pineau….. and Pat….were next door neighbors at Erie Street Apartments for many years. Pat always looked out for my mom and always was the first to greet me when I visited. She loved it when I brought my pups with me and she would give them hugs and they would give her kisses. Pat looked out for my mom and would keep me informed. Pat checked in on my mom many times each day and they would sit a chat and always shared their desserts.
I share in your sadness having lost my mom the day before….Maybe they just needed to get together and chat about old times and go for a long walk? I’m sure they are sharing a glass of chocolate wine….Heaven is lucky….two very lovely angels who will now watch over us.
