Our beautiful mother danced her last steps on this earth surrounded by family and friends to a heavenly dance floor. She would want us to continue the dance with kindness and humility. So, if you would like to honor Patricia’s memory, it was her wish to please consider the following: ‘Rather than simply writing a check, even to a worthy organization, listen to your heart. Identify someone specific in need: someone living on the street, a mother whose kids are hungry, a student without the resources to buy books. Then give your food or money or supplies directly, one-on-one. Make eye contact. Be present. It will be a blessed moment for the person you’re helping—a gift to you and a gift to me.’
