Mark and Carol, My Dad, Uncle Jack, always loved Patti. Spent many hours at our Grandmother's and our Grandfather's on 6th and Philadelphia Ave, Ocean City. She adored both of you.

Dear Mark and Carol and Families,

I did not know until today that your dear mother had passed on. I was so sorry to hear this. I will always think of her as the warm, kind mother of my little brother and sister's dear friends, Mark and Carol, and the sweet lady who sat for hours at the University pool, passing the time visiting with our mother, as they kept a watchful eye on their respective children. And the gatherings she and your Dad had at your home in Robscott when your friends were in town, Mark, after you were all grown, are remembered fondly by my brother, Keith. Please accept my Deepest Sympathy on your mother's passing. She was a truly lovely person.

Sincerely, Pam Edwards

I knew your Mom and Dad when they went to Salisbury University with my husband. And when they lived in Robscott. They were very special. My thoughts & prayers are with your family.

Dear Carol, Mark, and family,

Growing up with your family and spending many days at your family house in Robscott and in Bethany has made my life fuller and happier. I have the best memories sharing them with all of you with our extended family of forever friends in Robscott Manor.

Your mom will forever be in my heart and she will be greatly missed!! It is comforting to know that she is with your dad now and is at peace with him.

Love you you all,

Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Your mother was a dear and wonderful lifelong friend and I will miss her so much. She will forever remain in my heart with her beautiful smile and quick wit that always made me laugh.
You two and her grandchildren were the lights of her life. You made her very happy and proud.
Love and prayers for you, Louise King

Dear Mark, Carol, and family,

We moved into Robscott about the same time as your parents. Our children became fast friends and remain so today. Patti was a wonderful friend and mother and she will be missed. ❤

Carol, Mark and Family,

I am so sorry for your loss. I have many fond memories of spending time with your family down on 6th street in Ocean City. Patti, Irene and Joanne were such fun on the beach! I loved to hear their stories! I know they are together on a beach in heaven having a blast while Tom (with the zinc oxide on his nose) and Uncle Bill (with his metal detector) are nearby! And you are right about the delicious food! Your mom introduced me to a lebanon bologna sub with hot pepper flakes and italian dressing. I am also remembering a wonderful crab imperial on the table of Aunt Irene's dining room as I think back to those times. I know that those memories will forever make you smile. May she rest in peace.
Love to you all...Jonina

Mark and Carol,
What a sense of humor your mom had.She could have gone on the stage.This and the fact that she was a good,person will always be in your hearts.
I am sorry that the last part of her life was not easy due to her health,but she did have many good years before that occured.
My sympathy is with you and your children in this difficult time.
