PatchesDecember 17, 2001 – May 6, 2014
Patches was born on my late younger brother Mike’s birthday the year he died of cancer. I truly believe Patches came to us to help me with my grief. She loved both my husband and I and was always there for a “Patchy Adventure” to Dairy Queen, testing out newly made quilts, and of course giving lots of lap time to us. Since retiring she became my constant companion and helped me transition from a corporate environment to home. Patches was just over 12 years old when she was diagnosed with throat cancer and very shortly after she left us. Patches was our true love and we miss her. We believe Mike is giving her lots of love in Heaven until we get to see her again.–Cindy Peterson
