Remembering you my darling sister "Pats Darling" and all the great times we have had together both as children and as adults. I still remember the day before my wedding when you and Hyacinth came to our parent's home at Henley Beach and you spent hours in 108 degree heat ironing my wedding dress - LOVE IS!! and you shared your love to the fullest not only with your family but also to those you knew. Your loving "Big Sis" Mary Catherine
