My Mom continues to be awesome…

Pat was a volunteer for Boulder Community Hospital for 28 years, and for14 years she produced monthly original craft displays for the hospital. Along with the displays, she made baby blankets and her specialty: animal-shaped covers to place over the toes of children with casts on their feet. Her warmth and caring for others was a source of continual inspiration. Pat was the Boulder Community Hospital Outstanding Volunteer of the Year in l983 and was honored as the Colorado Auxilian of the Year in l984. She was a homemaker and the mother of two daughters, Linda Shoemaker of Boulder and Judi Miller of Tuscon, Az..”
So, wow, Mom! We are pretty darn proud of you around here. Keep up the good work!
