Lani V. Patterson, born Feb. 19, 1967, entered the eternity she devoted herself to telling others about on Jan. 6, 2013, suddenly and unexpectedly.
Lani had a perceptive mind, a good sense of humor and a beautiful voice. She was kind, caring and considerate of people and retained a vulnerable assumption of the same in return.
Lani was born in New York City, grew up in southern California and subsequently lived in San Francisco, England, New York City, California, Minnesota and Florida. In all these places, the people who knew her loved her. She will be so very missed, but is finally at peace in the presence of the Lord.

There will be a memorial service on Monday, Jan. 28, at 11 a.m. at the Sanibel Community Church.
Lani would have appreciated any desired memorial donations to be made to the Animal Refuge Center on Old Bayshore Road in North Fort Myers (239) 731-3535.
