On 12/10/16, Squeak baby's mom died.
Mary Patterson was a force. Smart, loving, beautiful, sharp dresser, accomplished , truth teller and down to earth.
I never forget the first time we met.
Homecoming & Robin was a freshman.
It was the morning after. Robin walks in the suite, Vickie these are my parents.
I was mortified, liquor bottles and roaches every where.
She walked in with Pat and said I am Mary and this is Pat.
Cool as a fan. No judgement.
Fast forward, my many trips to New Jersey. They cooked breakfast on the grill.
They had a great home and Amway.
She was a council woman. I had never known one personally. I was amazed at how down to earth and authentic a politician could be.
I am very saddened for Robin and the Patterson Family. First their Aunt, their cousin, Scott and now Ms. Mary. They have lost their matriarch and Mr. Pat, his soul mate.
I have very fond memories of Ms. Mary. She was a jewel... simply a jewel.
#Rip Ms. Mary Patterson, sleep well and May God strengthen your family as they navigate this new normal.
