Patti (Keister) #Cooprider (28 April 1940- 4 January 2020)

Exactly one year ago today, the 62 year old “Winning Team” of Patti & Coop Cooprider became minus one, Metastatic Vulvar Cancer. Patti said “No Grieving!”

Patti in #Erfenbach, #Germany with #DIEGO gracing the #Cooprider Villa walls 1980’s.

In the end, she was still leading by example. If you haven’t seen Patti in the mini-video on her next to last day in hospice bed, it’s an exhilarating testimony of Patti’s unique ability to rise above it with buoyancy and “joie de vivre” , in a spontaneous singing response to Coop’s “I Love You” with Teddy Bear in hand. (Be sure to wait ‘til Patti sings!)

It’s precious. And, a reminder to all of us. We can find the reserves of joy in the darkest moments. HAPPY NEW YEAR from Coop and Family!

PS: Thank you Stephen Max, DIEGO VOCI PROJECT Producer for helping with the video.
