I'm so sorry to hear of the loss of Patricia, or Patty as I and those that new her best. I met Patty when she worked at Bugermaster in my sophomore year. We later dated in my senior year and after graduation. Patty was born Canadian and her mother lived in Chattum, Ontario. I had the pleasure of traveling their to meet up with Patty after her return from Europe in 73. Instead of flying back together I bought a 1961 Bug from her mothers nieghbor. Patty and I embarked on a drive back to Seattle we drove to Niagara Falls and then headed south to Memphis Tenn. Patty and I sleep in the bug, Ran into a blizzard along the way and made to my uncles house in Memphis. I remember the hail storm size of golf balls we had never seen anything like it before. The sunrises and sunsets as we drove along the the back roads was just a great time. We finally made it to Las Vegas we only had a $1.25 between us so we took a chance on a slot machine it paid off we won $75.00  bucks It was enough to get a hotel, acouple of meals and a case of Coors and were on the road again.  We made it back to Seattle. I was only suppose to be gone 1 week max but it took us almost 4 weeks. I was in big trouble at work. Patty and I had some of the greatest times,  camping in Eastern Wa, Ocean Shores. lots of adventures.   It was great hanging with you Patty!!  I know that Patty leaves behind Two Boys and a host of people that loved her.  Gone way to early.
