Gone From Our Sight But Not From Our Hearts

She is our mom, grandma, mother-in-law, dear friend and the matriarch of Papa’s Pumpkin Patch. Mrs. P passed away peacefully this morning in her log home at the center of the patch. It was Mrs. P’s greatest desire to make it through the season and not have her failing health be a burden to the family. Once she knew we sold out of pumpkins this past Saturday, it was as if she was free to go. And so she did.

In Mrs. P’s memory, Papa’s Pumpkin Patch will be closed Thursday, Oct. 23 from 12-7 pm. We ask that you respect our privacy. We will be open Tuesday and Wednesday, Oct. 21-22, and for our final two days of the 2014 season on Friday, Oct. 24 and Saturday, Oct. 25. Thank you for your understanding.

We will miss her deeply. Her contributions to Papa’s are seen and felt in every corner of the pumpkin patch. We are grateful that she is now free to sew as many colorful flags and banners as her heart desires and mow as many acres as she sees before her. Mrs. P is gone from our sight but not from our hearts.

Papa and the family
