I know you all were very fond of Patt. I knew her and was fond of her too.   I have read all the peoples' comments in roll call, and felt it was a shame to see such a wonderful group of diverse people go homeless.  So I have started a group similar to this one and would greatly love to have you all check it out and perhaps feel comfortable enough to join.  It pretty much is along the same lines as Friends across the World.

The group is very new and is called If I Were To Visit...

I would love to have you join and continue to meet and chat with Friends Across the World.  Please consider this.

And know too, that I am certainly not aiming to replace such a nice person.
