Randy's sister Patty died in a car accident when she was 18 years old. She was hit head-on by a 16 year old drunk driver. Randy was 20 years old at the time. Patty was the youngest of 5 children... the only girl. She had just turned 18, she had just graduated from high school, she had just gotten her driver's license. I never knew her. My kids will never know their Aunt Patty.
So my daughter Miranda decided to do a scrapbook of Patty's life and give it to her Mamaw & Papaw for Christmas. After several weeks, she finally finished at 5:30 PM Christmas Day. It was done. We drove over to their house and she presented it to them. They were so deeply moved and grateful to have all her pictures and memorabilia put in one album. Miranda could not have done anything more honoring to Patty's memory. It's truly a work of love & art.
Love the picture of Randy & Patty on the lower right corner... that is the very first guitar that Randy ever played. How cute!
We ended the day singing for Mamaw & Papaw... Tyler singing and playing the piano, Miranda singing "Mary Did You Know" and Randy singing his newest song "The Christmas Card". What a special day.
