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!”
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!)
