Merry Christmas. Sorry this is a day late we were so busy running around yesterday. Took Mom and Carol up to Aunt Dianas house for dinner you were on our mind. Charlies mom has been up here from Delaware for the last 2 weeks . We took her a lotta places and it was great having her here. So did you have a nice holiday up there with Dad. I sure do miss you both. Pat I have been very depressed lately I don't like December anymore. It is not the same with out you here and your smiling face. And you knew that Charlie lost his Dad on Christmas day 2 years ago so that makes it a tough day to.
You take care Pat till I see you again this is not where it ends I will carry you with me always,
Vick and the Flock
P.S Mom says hello and so does Charlie
Merry Christmas Grandma,
Brad & I just want to wish you a Merry Christmas and let you know we often think about our time in PA with you and pap pap, as well as all of our other Great Family there. I truly wish there would have been more times that we would be able to visit you, but god needed a special angel, and he sure got one.
Sad for us that you aren't with us here, but thank God that through Salvation, we will spend eternal life together. Can't wait to see you again.
We love you
Merry Christmas Grandma. I miss and Love you so much. Our Cowboys are doing good, in the playoffs. Did I forget to mention that we wooped up on the Eagles a couple of weeks ago. lol. Alexis Jo is getting so big, wish you could have met her, but she carries on your name.
I love you
Merry Christmas mom. Jim and I have been thinking of you all day. Lots of laughs as we reminisce about all of the times we spent together and about your favorite day. We have enjoyed looking at the Grinch ornaments that Aunt Vic sent down. I didn't tell you that Jim and Lil Dalton both got baptized on November 23rd. I will upload some pics of the baptism. Alexis is getting so big and she is sweeter than ever. Lil Dalton turned 13 this month, along with your birthday. He is so tall and built just like his dad.
The Cowboys beat the Eagles butta couple of weeks ago and We are the NFC East Division champs this year. We play the Redskins this week and I sure hope we win. Send some help.
Our temperature was 65 degrees today on Christmas, wish it had been a little colder for Christmas, but it is Jesus' birthday, so that is all that matters.
We love and miss you so much mom. Until we meet again.
Jim and Kat
Happy Birthday. I love and miss you so very much.
Laptop running low will write to you soon
Till I see you again.
Happy Birthday mom, you may have three or four of the same message because I have tried to send this several times. I am going to get this message in here one way or the other. It is the second birthday since you have passed and last year you brought us ice and snow, this year it is in the 60s.
What an exciting celebration you are having with family members who are there with you but more amazing is you sitting at the throne of our God. What a magical and beautiful celebration you must be having. There has been an addition this year, my mom. I hope you two are having the best day ever.
We love and miss you so much, but you are in a much better place and I know that for sure. I hope Oscar is flying high with you and keeping you company.
Aunt Vic sent Jim and I some of you most favorite Christmas ornaments and they have been on the tree for over a week now, we are enjoying them so much and feel so close to you when we look at them.
Our Cowboys are playing very well this year, looks like playoffs for us, but we have to beat those Eagles first. Either way is okay really because we love both teams.
I have to sync my phone to the computer to get some pictures to upload and promise to do that for you. Alexis Jo is getting so big and looks just like Big D. Your little granddaughter named after you, she is so special.
Well I love you so much and I am at peace knowing that God promises we will all be together in eternity. Until then..... I love you beautiful lady.
Happy Birthday mom, what a celebration you must be having with family who is there with you. More amazing is sitting there at the throne of our God. How magical and beautiful it must be. This is the second celebration of your birthday since you have passed, this year my mom is there with you, I hope you both are having the best day ever. You brought us ice and snow last year and this year we are in the 60s. Always a good day when we have the promise of god, that we will all be together one day again.
Mom I miss you so very much, although you are in in a much better place, in the flesh, it still hurts because you were one of the most beautiful, caring, loving and giving women I had ever met. You are lived and missed and always will be.
Aunt Vic sent us some of your most special Christmas ornaments and now they hang on our tree. Jim and I are listening to old Christmas songs and just missing you.
I love you and Happy Birthday. Oh yeah, our Cowboys are doing good, but those Eagles keep beating us....lol. we are still not out yet.
I was just on my computer downloading some songs and thought of you. Jim and Katrina came up to Pennsylvania for a two week visit last month. It was great to spend time with both of them. We picked Lori up early one Sunday morning and drove to Wildwood a place Kat always wanted to go to. We stopped by the Harrisburger so she could be at the the place where we made so many memories with her husband. We went down to the ocean and dipped our feet in just to be with you. The lifeguard gave me and Lori a ride down simce she has to walk with a walker. I am glad she went along we all went up on the Boardwalk had lunch, well great pizza at Macks and took lots of pictures so when I get them on disc I will upload them to your new book. We do have another year to write to you and keep in touch.
Patti do you realize how much I miss you and your smiling face.Liam says hello he just turned 4 and we got his first school pictures.He looks adorable.
Till we meet again I always hold you close to my heart.
I have some sad news to tell you on Dads birthday my Oscar passed away he was 14 it happened so fast the vet said he had an infection but we thought he would get better guess he wanted to fly to Heaven to be with you he was always your favorite. There is even a picture in your book of him.
My heart is broken I miss him so much. I had him cremated along with Fredders there ashea are in beautiful mahogany urn boxes that I will treasure forever.You take care of all my birds that went before me. They are all loved and I am glad you are there to take care of them till I get there.
Love always Sister Vick Charlie and The Flock
It's your son. I know this will be the last entry I will get to make so I wanted to tell you how much I miss you. I never thought I would I have a day on this earth without you until it happened. It breaks my heart to think I can't pick up the phone and hear your voice. I still talk to you often and I know you're listening cause you still show me signs. I know God needed you for an important deed and that's why he took you. We all may have thought it was a little soon but I'm sure he had it timed that way for a reason. I love you, Mom, and miss you more than you could imagine. My Aunt Vicki (your sister) is cured of cancer once again and I thank you and God for giving her the strength to beat it this one last time. And I thank you for helping Lori get through her traumatic experience with Gillian Beret. Nan is doing alright except for her nerve causing pain in her leg but Jami has helped her in that matter. Well, I'll close by saying, "I love u and I miss you so much and until we meet again Mom..."
Love, your son, Jim
How are things with you. I tried to keep your condolence book online for another year but it does not say that it did so I am gonna order the books before it expires just in case. I sure do miss you. Mom and I went over to Lori's todsy her and Dave both say Hello. She is doing good. Charlie and I will see you at the shore on Sunday wish you could be there in person but guess I will just have to know that you will be there in spirit.
Til I see you again.
You will forever be in my heart and always in my thoughts.
Love always Vick, Charlie and the Flock
Hi Patti Jo,
It's me Mom.I miss you so much.Time seems to go fast and sometimes others are a blank. When I think of all the great times we had with you kids and grandkids great grankids and we always seem to be laughing. All the picnics, trips to the shore, Charlie and Vicks luaus in Grantville our old trips to Hershey Park, Coatesville and anywhere we went together we always had a great time.
Your Daddy and I had 4 wonderful kids and they all turned out to be beautiful women.
We all think of and miss you every day and cannot believe you are gone. Remember I will always love you. Take care of Ripper, Aunt Kay.Uncle Pear both Grandmas and Grandpas, Frankie, Charlotte, Pap Fessler, Jean, Sandy, Donald all your Aunts and Uncles and Amber and Maxine who would be 26 years old this year.
I love and miss you so very much,
I am keeping your guest book online for another year so that we may keep our thoughts of you still in the book. Charlie and I will be leaving for Wildwood on Sunday and I have so much to do. We will be sure to go down to the pier and have a drink with you. I am finally done with my chemo yea hopefully for good now. I am getting tired of it. I am supposed to tell you that Laura and Liam miss and love you so very much as do I.
Unitl I see you again you will forever be in my heart and always in thoughts.
Love always Vicki and The Flock
I can not believe it has been a year. Seems like we were just talking about your beauty consulting. Miss one of my favorite ladies Till we talk or see one another again.
Your friend always,
Well it has been a year already today and I miss you like it was yesterday. I read the beautiful message Katrina and Jim sent you. So cool that he saw a dove out on the wire. You came to visit them as well as me. There were a few doves out front today and I temporarily am fostering a small dove . I have had her since Thursday and whenever she coos I think of you. It is so special.
Oh Pat I wish you were here with us you just do not know how much you are missed. Charlie and I went to Moms today and she said to tell you hello and that she misses you to.
Charlie and I are going down to Wildwood the last week of August so you make your presence known while we are there. You will be thought of the whole time we are there with fond memories and a very special one of last year when I took your ashes to the ocean and put you in your final resting place then saw that one star in the beautiful sky when I turned around. It was bittersweet.
You just don't realize how many times I think I can call you and then think oh no I can't but I talk to you a lot and know you are with Dad and my precious birds that are up there. Have you seen Vegas my yellow lovebird with red eyes. She passed away May 27th in my arms with her partner Herbie by her side. Oh how I miss her I know you know that cause when you were on Earth with us I always had your shoulder to cry on whenever I lost one of my birds and you would comfort me.
Lori and Jami said to tell you hello and of course Laura and Liam. He is gonna be 4 in October hard to believe how bout.I wish Jim and Katrina lived closer I miss seeing them. Life has not been easy on any of us here. We need you back. If that could just happen it would be wonderful.But I always remember that all life finds shelter in the shadow of Gods wings and I know that's where you are.
Until I see you again please save a place up there for me.
I love and miss you so very much.
Your sister and The Flock
I am uploading some pics for you.
Hi mom, it has been one year since you left us for a much better place but my heart breaks just the same as it did that day. Jim and I were up late and over the loud talking and tv and air conditioner, we hear an owl and it was so loud and it continued to hoot and talk, I told Jim it was mom. Jim just walked out to the pool and there you were sitting on the high line wire, a beautiful dove coming to let us know you are here with us in spirit. I am selfish and want you here in person. My tears are streaming down my face and I can barely type this message to you. I have never experienced a heartache until I lost you. I love you so much and miss you so bad sometimes that I can hardly stand the hurt. My only peace comes from knowing you are with God and no longer suffering. I hope you have met my mother and have made her laugh and shown her the amazing woman that you are. She is an amazing woman as well.
Alexis Jo will be here on August 8 (mine and Jim's anniversary). That is the day they are inducing labor, I hues she could wait until August 9, either way, your great granddaughter who is being named after you will be here soon. I hear Ashley is expecting a son right around the same time.
I am going to upload a sonogram picture of Alexis Jo and one of the dove and some other pics for your guest book I almost feel like I am losing you again because we will no longer be able to write to you, but we will talk to you as we often do and every time I dust the shelves, I pick you up in the urn Earl bought for us and I talk to you. I will say it has brought Jim and I both a great deal of comfort having some of you with us everyday. I love you infinity and beyond........until I see you again watch over Jim and I and of course our families. Give my mom and pappy a big hug and "yes" a kiss too!,,,,your daughter-in-law
How are you doing? Well my latest CAT scan came back normal yea but they want me to do 3 more months of chemo as a precaution. Oh well at least that's good news.Heard from Katrina that you are gonna have another Great Grandaughter and she will have your middle name how neat is that.Charlie and I went to dinner last night at the New Cumberland Diner a new place that Laura is working at. I hope she does well there. She said to tell you hello and her and Liam miss you very much. He is gonna be 4 this year. Tyler misses you as well. I went to see hime play baseball last Saturday with Pat Wooten and Liam. He pitched the first inning and did very well.
Nan has been going through some more health problems. She is walking with a cane most of the time and is having back pain. Keep all the Angels you know watching over her please.
I went to see Lori the other day but she was not home she went to lunch at The Legion with her honey. It is great that she is getting out. Today is her birthday she is 52 but doesn't look it. I spoke to her this morning she said to say Hi to you so a big HI from your other Sis Lori and of course Dave.
Tomorrow is Memorial Day already and its gonna be 84 degrees out already. Just remembering the text a few months ago I wrote about all that snow you we were having. How things change how bout. Laura and Liam are coming over tomorrow.Charlie is cooking chicken and cabbage on the grill as well as some corn on the cob. Sounds good.
Well dear I have some laundry to fold so till I see you again I will hold you close to my heart.
All my Love,
Vicki and The Flock
Anything new up there in beautiful Heaven?I just got done watching The Voics theres an 18year old country singer from Texas that reminds me so much of Big D . Then I found out that Katrina watches the show to. Wish we could watch it together.
This is a short message Its after 11 pm and I gotta get some sleep. I have chemo in the morning and get my latest results from last CAT scan. Wish me some luck my big Sis
I love and miss you so very much
Till I see you again,
you will always be with me.
Mom, you will be happy to know that Big Dalton s baby Alexis Jo. Of course Jo is after you. We found out today that she has clubbed feet. It can be corrected with dedication and hard work. Can you put a good word in for our little angel and family? We need our Lord and all the angels to form a hedge of protection around her. Everythiing else seems to be okay with Alexis Jo so far. Her mother has some blood clotting abnormality and it is now a high risk pregnancy. She is due August 17th but they are going to plan the delivery when she is 37 weeks along, which puts her being born around July 26th. A joyous occasion at the anniversary of us losing you. This little miracle named after you may be just what we need to bring us happiness during a time of sadness. You were always so positive and cheerful. We could sure use that right now. I miss you so much that my heart feels like it is literally breaking. I had a dream the other night and you were there looking so beautiful. I cried with hapiness and relief because you were back and i did'nt have to miss you anymore. But you told me you could'nt stay and had to go back but your message was "don't live in this sadness. Because you are here with us even if we can't see you". I remember it so vividly. I am doing my best to remember and honor your words. I love you and I just wanted you to know about your granddaughter and her being named after you. She will proudly carry that name and make you proud. Send the Angels.
Mom. I love you. Very hard times right now. We need you more than ever. I know you could brighten our day, we dont have that option, so remembering how you lit our days before will be okay. Today is Briana's birthday. We had a nicd dinner and then we had cake. She is wanting to play a board game Nd they are waiting on me. I guess i better go play. I love you so much and miss you deeply.
Well Yesterday was Easter. We had dinner at Moms house. Was definitely not the same without you and your smiling face. We even missed your your spinach. Jami was not feeling herself so she didn't come but she did bring up her delicious cole slaw. And Lori and Dave were there with pickled eggs and red beets Yummy. Lori looks good I know you would proud of her. Shes getting along well with her walker. It was great to see them both. Laura,Liam and Tyler came over. We had a Easter Egg hunt for them. It was a beautiful day and we had fun.Missed April and the kids She had to work all day.
So I am doing ok a little depressed a lot going on.I miss you so much. I wish I could just pick up the phone and call you.
Mom is having some problems with pain in her legs. She is going to therapy as is Charlie. He had surgery on his other shoulder.
Everyone said to say Hello and they love and miss you.
Till I see you again I will hold you close to my heart.I love you so very much.
Forever missing you,
Vicki and The Flock
P.S Charlie and I are taking a mini vacation to Ocean City and the Atlantic Ocean where you are everywhere, next week. Am looking forward to it.I will see you there.
Happy spring. I have missed you in the warmer months. Carnations are simple and beautiful. I will have them in our home. Noah was over and remembering fun times you gave to him . thank-you. Till we talk again . Love always Becki
It is Sunday morning and I was thinking about you after I read the beautiful message that Katrina left you.
Oh Pat Katrinas mom passed away last week. She needs you now to so please be there for her and her Texas family.
It was heartbreaking news. I wish I could just fly out there and spend some time with all of them and hold Kat and Jim and give them the biggest hug.But I am still on chemo and need to stay on track. I didn't tell you but the cancer spread to my lymph nodes.It showed up on the CAT scan. I am very upset about this. They put me on different chemo for the next 3 months. Hope it works how bout?
Well I see Katrina sent some very nice pictures to your guest book. She is the best.I know you already know that. We have had over 30 inches of snow this winter it just keeps coming. Seems every few days we get more snow. Running out of places to put it. Everything is just so white you would probably love it but enough is enough LOL.
Till next time dear I hold you close in my heart and miss you so very much.
Till I see you again,
I LOVE YOU
Vicki and The Flock
p.s Nan and Lori both say Hi
Just thinking of you as I often do. Jim, the boys, the girls and I are constantly sharing our memories of you. We will just be sitting and watching tv and one of us will just start with "remember that time mom....". We laugh so much you're the topic of conversation because you were always so happy and funny.
You are missed more than I can put into words. My heart hurts so bad because I miss you so much and when I sit and dwell on the things I miss, it is truly unbearable. I know Jim suffers and he has a hard time knowing he can't pick the phone up and call you. I know you are in a better place but I just wish you were here.We missed getting your call on New Years Eve. You always called and you were hilarious when you would call and tell us about the fun evening you had. Christmas was difficult and it just wasn't the same knowing you weren't having the usual family festivities with our PA family.
I need you and pappy to get every angel you can and open your wings and be a shield for Aunt Vic. I am asking God and all of you angels to give Aunt Vic all of the strength that you can to fight this cancer. She needs as many guardian angels as possible to help our family to heal from all of the ailments and obstacles that are keeping us from being healthy and happy and quit trying to take away our peace and our faith. Aunt Vic and Aunt Lori need healing. They have been so strong and have fought so hard and have done everything in their power to keep on fighting, they need help, they need to have a little rest. So please get God and an army of angels and lets get them well. Nan deserves a break, she has had to carry all of this worry and heartache and she needs a time of peace. I know God can make this happen, especially with you and pappy by his side.
I just don't want to live without my Aunt Vic, she is the most precious gift in my life and Jim and I need her.
Mom, I love you and I know I will see you again one day, but I miss you so much and I long to see your beautiful blue eyes and that big smile and hear your voice. Until then, I will keep it together and be strong for Jim and the Dalton's, Aunt Vic, Nan and Aunt Lori. XoXoXoXo
Your Daughter-in-law, Katrina
Good Morning Pati.
How are you doing today? i miss you so much. i had a dream about you. last night. You were in a concert playing a piano and very well I might add. We were all there. You looked beautiful long blonde hair and healthy. i text Katrina and she said. you were letting me know how happy you are up in heaven. That doesnt really help all of us still stuck on Earth. You are missed by many. isaw Lori the other day she is still in Rehab but doing better. she is eating on her own and can even answer the phone. She took a few steps without her walker. Mom and I told her how proud we are of her she has come along way but she wants to come home so bad. She had surgery on her right eye and can see now we just needa get the other on fixed.
Shes been in the hospital 7 months already I just coulodnt imagine. i have been on chemo for 3 months already and had a CAT scan on Tuesday to see if the tumer is shrinking. i get results on Tuesday. So say a prayer for me.
My little Cricket and I are having a cup of chai tea. My Fredders has been gone for a month already. i miss him so much and lately I still cry at least once a day..Patti I am so sad and wish you were here to comfort me. i need you my big sis.Why did you have to leave us. i do know your not suffering any more Life down here has been pretty sucky lately. Charlie might have to have surgery on his other shoulder. its the same problem as his othere one was.
Lori said to tell you Hello.Well my dear love you take care til i see you again i will hold you always close in my heart and prayers. please come see me anytime in my dreams. it makes me happy.
Vicki and My Flock xoxo
How was your Christmas up in Heaven. We all missed you at the Christmas Eve party. We all did wear our pajamas in memory of you.Remember last year at your house Liam was running around in his jammies and looked so comfortable you said we should all do that next year and so we did. Had the party at Aprils house it was nice but sad without you. Lori is still in Rehab and doing better. She is walking with a walker and going about 60 feet. Very good. She is scheduled for surgery on her eyes in 2 weeks. I am sure she will feel much better after those cataracks are removed.
Well here it is 2014. Hard to believe another New Year. Did I tell you my Fredders passed away on December 17th. I am heartbroken. I loved that little parakeet. Guess it was his time. How lucky are you that you get to see him. Wish I could. Tell him how much I miss him and Pappy and the other birds that left me here. Patti you were truly a wonderful sister and I cry a lot that you are not here. God always takes the best ones first. But its not fair to us left behind.
Charlie is out there cooking Pork and Sauerkraut. It smells good should be done soon.
Guess you saw the game the other night between Eagles and Dallas. It was a close game coulda went either way in the end. Romo didn't play he hurt his back. Any how Dallas lost and put The Eagles in the playoffs. Charlie is happy. It was a good game. Like Katrina said you and Pappy were probably at different ends of Heaven that night. LOL
I really do love and miss you.
Till I see you again.
Forever in my heart,
Green Bay and Dallas. This one is for you . I truly miss my beauty consultant. You and I know what this means. Not ready to watch xmas with the Kranks but will soon. Always Becki
Still looking out at the ice and snow that hasnt even begun to start melting. This kind of weather makes us think of you even more than normal. Jim talks about how much you loved the snow and how much you loved Christmas. He talks about how you would put your decorations up early and leave then up as long as you possibly could. We watched the Grinch last night with you in Jims thoughts as he watched it. He talked about how you would record all the Christmas cartoons bc you said you wanted to watch them throughout the yeat, not just at Christmas. We put your ashes with all the snowmen by the Christmas Tree bc we know you would want to be where you could admire the lights. Gosh, it is just so hard not having you here. The worst for Jim is not being able to call you. He is really heartbroken. He does as good as he can with it, but a part of him is just empty and sad. Plz send us some better days and good luck. We could really use it. We need a reprieve I love and miss you infinity and beyond
Happy Birthday Mom!
Today you would be 55 years young. I miss you so much and there isn't a day that goes by I don't think about you. You better be in Heaven showing those Angels how to have a good time. I see that you brought us snow in Texas for your birthday. I Love and miss you so much.
Love your son, Jim
Well today is your birthday and I hope you are doing something special up there in Heaven. Probably having some laughs with Dad. I know you know how much everyone misses you. Mom and I have plans to spend some time with Earl on Wednesday. He is gonna let us have a few of your special Christmas ornaments to share with Liam Jim and Katrina. They will always be special treasures on our tree. Frosty is on television tonight so I am DVR ing it for Liam to watch and say Happy Birthday just like Frosty does. I remember all those times he watched it at your place over and over he wanted to watch Frosty and you always let him. I am giving Liam this years Grinch ornament that was meant for you. Maybe I will just start collecting them for him as a special tribute to you the Grinch lover.
Well dear you enjoy your day.
I love and miss you. Till I see you again. Take care of yourself and you will always be in my thoughts and prayers. This is going to be a tough Christmas remember you said we were all going to have Christmas Eve in our comfies so we could all be comfortable like Liam was last year.
He is doing good in Day Care and guess what Pat he is reading and very good. He missed you on Thanksgiving He knew you weren't there and hung his head and teared up. You will always be his loving Aunt Pat to him.
My love always,
Vick and The Flock

Well I am goung to need about 54 more of these candles, I think I better just stick with the one, how bout? I always thought it was crazy how our birth years all ended in 8 and ten years apart. Nan 1938, Earl 1948, Mom 1958 and Me 1968. Jim and I have so many things like that, we both have sons named Dalton, his and my mom's birthdays are August 14th, Little Dalton's moms both have birthdays on July 7th and Jim's step-mom's name is Katrine Hatcher and mine is Katrina Hatcher. it's just crazy, like our family. Lol. I LOVE AND MISS YOU INFINITY AND BEYOND. SMILE THAT BEAUTIFUL SMILE OF YOURS.
Happy Birthday Mom. You always did love the cold, so you just had to send us the ice and snow here in Texas on your birthday. Lol. I know you are celebrating up in heaven with the family members who are there with you. I miss you so much, words can't even begin to describe the emptiness and sadness I feel inside, especially when Jim is having a hard time with you being gone, which is quite often. What an amazing lady, you touched my heart and showed me a kind of love I had never felt before and for that I will always be greatful. Remembering you on your birthday, may you rest in peace.
Happy birth day grandma!!!!
I miss you a whole lot and hope your having fun up there!
we all miss you and wish you were still her to celebrate!
hope you have a good one.
love and miss you,
Well good afternoon from a snowy Texas city!!!! Bet you're laughing at us canceling school and such for a few measly inches of snow :) I just wanted to wish you a very happy birthday!!! I hope you're celebrating and laughing and smiling and having a great time! We love and miss you!
Good Morning Patti. Happy Thanksgiving. We are having dinner over at Lauras. There is only gonna be 7 of us there. Big change. If I had a wish that could come true I would be spending Thanksgiving with you.
I love and miss you so very much. Till I see you again.
Vicki and The Flock
ps. say a special prayer for little Fredders he is struggling and cant get up top to his perch. It breaks my heart. xoxo
Well the surgery didn't go as planned. Seems the tumer is connected to my bladder and if they completed the surgery It would burn my bladder with no chance of ever healing. So I have to go through 6 more months of Chemo again. Lucky me how bout. Well I will fight cancer once again. I wish you were here to be part of my support. I need you so much and miss you dearly.
I have some more pictures I want to put in your album for all to enjoy.
Till I see you again,
You will always be by my side.
I love you,
Hope you are doing fine up there in Heaven. Everyone misses you down here. I don't like being the oldest sister. Wish you could just come back.I need you especially now. I have a tumer again that on Monday I will be having surgery to freeze it and I am a little scared so the only way I could talk to you was in your guest book. I don't know why cancer keeps coming back to me.Mom Charlie and I met with the surgeon on Tuesday and talked for about an hour. It is a very tricky procedure. Jim and Katrina assured me everything is gonna be alright. I think of you so very much and miss you terribly. This is all still so unbelievable to me that you are gone. But your not really you are right beside me and so many others being our Guardian Angel. So dear please be with me on Monday and bring Pappy to.
Lori is in a rehab hospital and doing pretty well in therapy. Mom and I go see her every Wednesday just like we used to come to your house and visit you while you were watching Liam. He just turned 3 Pat where did the time go? Well dear you take care of yourself and all of us.
Till I see you again,
I love you and miss you,
Vicki and The Flock
p.s. Charlie says hello
To my dearest family, some things I'd like to say...
but first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay.
I'm writing this from heaven. Here I dwell with God above.
Here, there's no more tears of sadness; here is just eternal love.
Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight.
Remember that I'm with you every morning, noon and night.
That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through,
God picked me up and hugged me and He said, "I welcome you."
It's good to have you back again; you were missed while you were gone.
As for your dearest family, they'll be here later on.
I need you here badly; you're part of my plan.
There's so much that we have to do, to help our mortal man.
God gave me a list of things, that he wished for me to do.
And foremost on the list, was to watch and care for you.
And when you lie in bed at night, the day's chores put to flight.
God and I are closest to you....in the middle of the night.
When you think of my life on earth, and all those loving years
because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears.
But do not be afraid to cry; it does relieve the pain.
Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain.
I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned.
But if I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand.
But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is o'er.
I'm closer to you now, than I ever was before.
There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb;
but together we can do it by taking one day at a time.
It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too...
that as you give unto the world, the world will give to you.
If you can help somebody who's in sorrow and pain,
then you can say to God at night......"My day was not in vain."
And now I am contented....that my life has been worthwhile,
knowing as I passed along the way, I made somebody smile.
So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low,
just lend a hand to pick him up, as on your way you go.
When you're walking down the street, and you've got me on your mind;
I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.
And when it's time for you to go.... from that body to be free,
remember you're not going.....you're coming here to me.

Charlie and I got back from Wildwood a few days ago. We took some of your ashes to the beach. As I walked out in the ocean the water wasn't even cold I opened the bottle and spread your ashes as the waves took you out to sea. When I turned around with tears in my eyes a bright beautiful sunset was there along with one very bright star in the sky. I knew it was you and you were happy in your final resting spot in Wildwood New Jersey. On our walk back there was one feather in my path. I picked it up and kept it knowing my guardian angel was looking out for me. I felt better and tried real hard to enjoy our vacation without you.
On our morning bike rides I could feel you with me as was when we went for crepes at Duffers. Twice we went down to the Harrisburger and it was empty so sad. Charlie and I also went to feed the ducks twice there were 36 there one time. I fed them a box of honey nut Cheerios. There was one Egret there that Charlie got a lot of good pictures of. I will upload it to your guest book along with some other Wildwood pictures.
I had a very rough week before we went.I didn't want to go then on our last day there I didn't want come home.You will always be there and always in my heart.
Earl Nan and I went to lunch yesterday at Lauras work. He got us all a very cute little urn with some of your ashes in. Mom held hers to her face and cried oh Patti Jo I miss you. It was very nice of Earl to do that for us.You had a great husband there and it is so sad that your relationship was cut short. He said he is getting by one day at a time and misses you so very very much.
Well honey you take care. Keep an eye on all of us left behind. Till I see you again.
I love you Big sis,
Missing you Vicki

It has been a month already since you left us and I miss you so much. Heard Earl took your ashes to Wildwood on Sunday,just you and him. I am sure it was a wonderful tribute to you from your wonderful husband.
Charlie and I Leave Sunday to go to Wildwood. Hope we get to see you or at least feel your spirit around us.
Early morning bike riding will not be the same without you and your special Bloody Mary, LOL Well Earls recipe. We all had some great times and very special memories that I hope will carry us through.
This month has been such a blur. Mom Jimmy Katrina and Laura all feel the same way. You Patti will be loved and missed by so many,
I kept your guest book for another like I did for Dad. That way we can enter more Pictures and write to you whenever we want.
We will all have to find comfort in knowing that you Patti our loved one has been guided gently home.
I love and miss you so very much,Sister Vicki

Hi Aunt Patti it's only been about 25 days since u left this world n I feel just lost this is one of the hardest things I have ever had to go through I'm in denial I can't even believe it is real. When u ask Liam where his Aunt Patti is he says camping a little silly but he still doesn't understand he's going through a lot he doesn't want anyone to leave he's afraid he might not see them again. He is soo smart n a lot of what he knows is because of u. I'm so glad u got to watch him ever since he was born he will remember n treasure those memories. He starts preschool in October n I believe he will be one of the smartest kids in the class our little genius how bout we miss u soooo much it's just not fair at all I don't understand why this had to happen or what we could of done differently. I love n miss u soooo much my aunt my godmother so many memories life is just not the same well I hope all is wonderful n beautiful up there save us all a spot ok kisses n hugs till we meet again ????????????????
May God bless you Earl and family. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

Mom, there are no words to describe the way my heart breaks for all of our family because we miss you so much! Just knowing we will not see you again on this earth, is almost more than I can handle. We will however, see you again in heaven and what a glorious day it will be. I'm thankful you are no longer suffering.

Although our paths crossed for just a short time, the smile we received at the Legion while last our lifetime. Thank you for making us welcome and feel that we are among friends. You will be missed.
We are sorry terribly sorry to hear of Patt's passing. We will always remember her good heart and wonderful smile. Our thoughts and love to you and your family.
The first time I met you, you opened your heart and home to my family without question. You always made brad and I feel as though we were a part of your family. You and earl made us laugh and smile the entire time we were there. It's hard to believe that your bright smile will no longer be seen in person, but we have memories to laugh us a life time. Pop Jim is a lucky man to have bad a mom as fun and loving as you were. May you rest in peace and may God watch over earl, pop Jim, mom, Lori, Jamie, vick, and Nan and the rest of the gang :). We love you all!
The first time I met Patti 13 years ago, I would have never thought that as different as 2 people could be from each other, that we would turn out to the best of friends. We shared so much with each other and went through so much together, both good and bad and I wouldn't have changed one day of it. She brought so much love and joy to my life and she truly was one of the best friends that I could have ever asked for. Patti, you will always remain in my heart and I will never forget you. I miss you more than you know and love you..til we meet again..Your BFF always...Jean
Loved as a sister, always greeted with that big smile and a hug. You will be missed but never forgotten.
Mrs. Rowan, Jimmy, Earl, Vicki, Lori, and Jamie...My heart goes out to you all. You are in my thoughts and prayer. God received a beautiful, thoughtful, caring angel on Saturday! Memory Eternal.
So sad to hear of Patti's passing. I will always remember all the good times we spent at the American Legion. Earl and family, you all are in my thoughts and prayers.
Gosh, Patti, if you could only know how much we will miss your smile and miss you by Earl's side. Earl, God bless you during these times. He does love you.
I am saddened by Patty Jo's passing. May she rest in peace , and may God bless and comfort her family and friends.
