Updated March 2018

I have many fond memories of playing with Patty and other cousins at our grandparents' homes in Santa Monica when we were little kids. Like all of my cousins, and even my brothers, I've seen all too little of her over the years, though. I can recall visiting her briefly during a long-ago business trip to the Washington DC area, and also seeing her at a few family gatherings along with a bunch of other seldom-seen cousins. I am very grateful to her for sharing this information with me and with the rest of our cousins and family members.
