To the editor:

Our family recently lost our mother, Mary Remele. Mom was 94 and lived a productive, healthy life and passed away gently and tenderly on Valentine’s Day.

We had family members coming in from many directions and decided to ask the Hotel Pattee to help us with accommodations.

They were wonderful to work with. Because of the weather, we had to extend stays for some and change our plans at times.

Times like these are difficult, but because of the help of the Hotel personnel, we were comfortable, well fed and rested.

We were able to spend quality time together and everyone arrived home safe and sound.

We were all very glad for their help and appreciated every kindness extended to us at this difficult time.
