Granny Pat is one of the most beautiful people I know.
She is Nick's grandmother and our kids' great-grandmother and has always welcomed me in as one of her own since the day we met.
She was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer almost 2 years ago. She was not given the best prognosis, but despite this, she maintained the best attitude, went through treatment like a champ and recently got a report from the doctor that even he couldn't explain. Her counts are better than ever and the cancer isn't growing, so with no other explanation for this, we'll just call it a miracle.
We were just able to visit with her this weekend and she's just as beautiful, active and loving as ever, living life to the fullest and enjoying each day because as she said, "That's all any of us has anyway."
She's exactly right.
We love you Granny Pat!
