Patricia Ann Gates

Today would have been my grandma's 68th birthday.  Instead it marks the beginning of the 10th year since she passed away.  I cannot begin to explain what a loss that was in my life, as her first grandchild I was spoiled because I got to know her more than any of the other grandchildren and I like to think that I was the favorite.  She was such an amazing women willing to give anything to her children and grandchildren, and I cannot explain how much I miss her, especially now that I am older and place more value on family.

I know that she is watching over each member of our family and helping us along the way.  I hope that she is proud of me and all the things I have done with my life...

I love you, Nanny
