Patty Pishos

Patty and I went to School together. I really REALLY liked her. She was REAL. She loved her grandmother who was Greek, and I loved hearing her stories of her Grandma. She loved her grandma's Baklava.
Even tho I haven't seen her or heard from her in years, I suddenly miss her. We were 1 month and 1 day apart in Birthdays.

Hi! Thanks for the kind words about my sister, Pat. I forget that she was a person of her own with her own life and people.

I can't figure out who you are from your photo on your blog? Can you write me at

I'd love to trade some more memories of Pat. She has been gone a year and a half and I miss her more all the time.

Thanks and Happy New Year!
