It’s been awhile, since I have lived in Albuquerque, NM for the past 30 years, howeve,r I have many happy and fond memories of my cousin Pat. Bell family gatherings picnics, weddings, holidays, and funerals were a tradition for many years throughout my childhood. I thought as a kid that Pat and her late husband Jim were a wonderful, fun-loving, beautiful couple. Jim passed way too early, but Pat carried on raising her children and was always fun to be around. Rest in Peace Pat

I will miss seeing you working in the garden in front of your house… wish you luck trying to run into your husband in Heaven…I’m sure it’s overly crowded by now, but I’ll bet he met you when you arrived….our thoughts go out to your family and friends..you will be missed….. tim bauhof and Sean…..
I will miss her so very much. She was an Awesome Aunt. She also was my Godmother . We were so very close. I am Grateful for having her in my life. I will never forget all the things that we shared and did together.
Denise and Gardner family,
I was so sorry to hear about the loss of your grandmother and mother. Your family is in my thoughts and prayers.
I was a teacher in Berea and I believe I had James as one of my students. His mother was a very supportive parent in so many ways. On one of our field trips, I forgot to pack a lunch and she went home to pack one for me. I was a beginning teacher and she was my guardian angel. If I am contacting the family who lived near the Fair Grounds in Berea, then I must direct my comments to James who was a wonderfully well behaved and good student. I do believe that your family continued to be the close knit family that I remember so well because “Mom” was there for you and the rest of the family. Sweet memories always help at a time like this. I am sure you have many. I do too.
Patty, Diane and Jim,
Our deepest condolences to you and your families. Very sorry for your loss, and for the deeply emotional roller coaster you’ve all been riding. Take comfort in knowing your mom’s in such a wonderful place now.
Phil and Donna Aron
