    I am very saddened by this news. Patty was one of the nicest girls in school I loved her laughter. When I hear the song “Tiny Dancer”, I will remember you.

    Patty was my cousin and I will never forget how much fun we used to have together as kids. We would talk for hours during sleepovers and laugh until we cried over and over again. She was a joy to be around and a wonderful cousin to grow up with. As a young girl, I used to always look up to her as she was four years older and wiser. She was an awesome role model. May memories comfort us in this time of sorrow.
