I am so sorry for your loss. Your mom was a great lady..brilliant, kind, fun loving, generous, faithful, involved,...She was amazing! It seemed there was nothing she wouldn't tackle. We shared our Uncle Jim and Aunt Katherine and I like to think of Pat and Sheila as cousins.
How we (the Kelly family) looked forward to the Fitzmorris's annual summer visits when we were children!
Their presence meant that our Seattle clan would be with them for picnics and outings. We played together in the icy waters of Puget Sound, picnicked at lakes and Cedar River, rented cabins on Whidbey Island, and lamented the day when Pat and Sheila boarded the train to head east. However, the crazy songs and jokes they taught us linger till this day. In later years Pat was still loyal to our family, trying to keep me up to date on your family, and coming west for our special occasions. I will remember with fondness Pat's presence in my life and how she brightened the world in many ways!
