So many memories of all of you at your house, with Barb and Girl Scouts. Of Chewy or Butch, I always confuse myself about you both, my sons adoptive Mass, seeing Pat at the wellness center most recently in and out of the pool. She will be missed. Hugs and blessings and condolences to her siblings and to the rest who I do not know. Carla Staub
