I know this is a little hard to see, but I wanted this wind chime put up immediately in our backyard. It came in the mail a few days ago from Katy, one of Patrick's friends that he taught with here in Gilbert. Katy is a wonderful human being and I have enjoyed getting to know her through the years. Plus she thinks the world of Patrick, as he does her.
Here is what she wrote:
Sheila and family,
I was so sorry to hear of the loss of your beloved Aunt Teresa. I felt honored to have met her the few times I did....I loved her smile and the twinkle in her eye.
I was trying to think of something appropriate to mark her passing and this is what I came up with....I know your family loves to gather and celebrate one another's company... I am guessing over the years, maybe some wine could have been enjoyed. So, I thought a wind chime made from a green bottle to honor the Irish heritage, also the Celtic cross to honor Teresa's Heavenly journey and I always listen and look for my lost loved ones in nature. I hope when you hear it chime, you think of Teresa and all who loved her. I know you have many happy memories to comfort you and bring you peace.
Thank you, Katy, for this beautiful wind chime. I have already heard it chime and it makes me think about Teresa. Your beautiful words are also cherished.
