Thank you to Patos for keeping in touch with Patty even when she was too ill to hold the phone.

Patty kept it private that she was battling Alzheimer's Disease for many years. She was always so brave and cheerful and we already miss the loving support that she never failed to give. She was always cheerful and brave and loved her family very much. My sincere condolences to the Overgard family and to all of us, her friends, who will miss her.

I'm actually a lot more upset than I thought I'd be. Patty really did bring so much to the forums with her stories and personality.

I've been sitting here thinking about Patty. She was my first Sims friend. When I was brand new at Sims back around 2002 I asked a question at TSR, the first forum I ever joined, and got scolded because someone else had asked the same thing before and I hadn't searched for the answer before posting (I didn't know you were supposed to, it was my first time in a forum) Patty jumped in, said nice things and answered my question. She was so nice and helpful and taught me a lot I didn't know. She was always willing to share and help. She was always full of sunshine!

It was through Patty that I learned that Alzheimer's is a fatal disease. I always thought it was something that made old people forgetful. I didn't realize how serious it was or that younger people could get it until I started looking up more about it. She was very brave. hug

Thank you Patos and Mars for telling us, and for the pics!
May she be sunshine forever now hug

I just had contact once with her in this forum last year, and was glad to hear she had found a person who cared for her and she liked, even if I did not know her.

Her Avatar always touched something inside me.

My condolences to her family.

Very sorry for you too, Bluesage. I know you and Patty were Besties and collaborated a long time on the Story where you were the Magic Man. hug

TYVM, Mars. sad

We were close friends, for those who had never met.
We exchanged letters, photos and feelings.
In Sims we married, raised a family and had adventures.
...and we shared a story:

I will miss her more than I can tell, even more than I know now.
Vaya con Dios, Senorita. sad

I am so sorry to hear such terrible news. To all of Patty's family and friends I send my sincerest sympathy and condolences. I wish I had known her more than just through her Sims stories and pictures.

Wow, she was just a teensy bit older than I am.

I'm so, so sorry to hear this. I remember her from the TSR forums, the Bluesage family story and, of course, here. My condolences to her family and to those who knew her here.
