As the family of Patricia (Patty), we would like to thank God for this day of celebrating LIFE.
Patty was a person that loved life to the fullest, and she was always the life of the party. She loved people so much that she made the choice to give life after death, and what a wonderful choice she made. Though we tragically lost our dear Patty, she went on to save lives through donation and to make a difference in the lives of others and their families.
Patty was also a very courageous person and has now become our family hero. Her decision to register and become an organ and tissue donor has shown us how to be examples in our family as well. Patty’s choice to help and save others has impacted our lives in such a positive way that we have made the decision to register as organ and tissue donors.
We miss Patty very much and losing her so suddenly has forever changed our lives, but our fond memories of her will forever live on with us, while her “gift of life” will live on in the many lives she has touched through donation.
We are very proud of our Patty for making a choice that has made a difference not only in the lives of others, but also in our lives.
