To the children of Patti Ann Howell,i am your mothers cousin,i lost contact with her when we were in our twenties. I tried to find her by calling aunt Irene in the 1980's,but she would not give me any information.I am so sorry it will never happen now.I had so many wonderful things to share with her,the opening of Clio center for the arts which i founded in 1983, and my newly published book.I would like to be a part of Patti's children's lives if i may,please contact me.
