Dear Pat, I'm terribly sorry for your loss of your husband. I will never forget you babysitting my children. When I went to pick them up, they were always so happy. You always let them be themselves which was often in the dirt. I knew they were being treated like kings. I never felt bad about leaving them with you when I worked. My heart was always so sure they were being treated like I would treat them!!!
