I will miss you dear friend
My lifelong friend, I miss you so much, I miss the laughter and the crazy times that we had. Thank you for standing with me through thick and thin . I just don’t like this, you know? I love you, Patti Lou …
Be at peace now, my sweet friend.
Patti Porter was my mentor and friend when I began my journey as Property Manager with McCluskey Realty. I will still say to this day that Patti was the best Property Manager that I have ever met.
Headstrong and determined to do the best job she could at all times.
I will always remember you and miss you Patti. Rest In Peace.
My dear friend ❤️ I am so glad that we stayed in touch. You were my first friend in Melbourne and helped me learn real estate and property management. I will never forget our travels to Venice and Florance Italy
Love you always
Oh, Patti… We first met in your ETC boutique. Your Cappie and my Bolivar were mere pups. We’d meet in your shoppe with both pups and share a bottle of wine at the end of your work day. They would play and we would sip. Both of our pups lived into their 15th and 16th years. I pray you and Cappie are reunited and that y’all will keep an eye on Bolivar (and all my other angels) until I meet at Rainbow Bridge, too. Then, there was your move to Ormond from Melbourne with our cars loaded with your “stuff” and your pups. What memories we made and shared throughout our years of friendship!
I miss you my friend and am grateful for the times we had. With love,…
