Scoop Posted March 9, 2008 Report Share Posted March 9, 2008 I was devastated by an email from Nadine MacDonald, letting me know that Pat Fappiano passed away on March 5 after a short bout with lung cancer... Pat was a great friend with an infectious love of marbles, glass in general and all those around her.... Her Boisterous "Hey Buddy!!!" will always be with me.... We're really gonna miss you, Girl!!! Her enthusiasm was always runnin' way over the speed limit.... She just could never get enough of the wonder inside of a little glass ball..... WINSTED — Patricia E.
