Fond memories Pat has shared about her mom, her vibrancy and joy for life -- her family, friends. So independent, determined, brave, yet loving, and always willing to help others, as well as working on handiwork projects with Pat on the other side of the country. She will be missed, but her smile and beautiful character will live on in the hearts of her family and friends forever. Thanks for the love and memories, Lula.

Lula was always a happy lady. Ill never forget the time she gave my husband a hand stitched handkerchief. It has a special meaning especially because it was made with her hands. We will miss you Miss Lula.
