My parents were lifelong friends of Pat and Ted. I remember visiting their farm as a child. Ted and my dad (Bob) shared some rowdy times in their youth, including their legendary attempted canoe trip to Mexico. When Ted died, Pat kept up the friendship, visiting my parents periodically and remembering old times. Pat had a simple kindness that we'll greatly miss.

Our prayers to all the family, our neighbors for many years. I thought of your Mom as a cow whisperer. She was the sweetest woman I ever knew. Deb Buck
