I like how Patty's father employed Christmas to guide her toward renewed hope.

Your title and your beginning are heart-breaking. Then you progress from heart-breaking to heart-warming. I loved the way the father, in his fatherly wisdom, brought Patty out. The loving name "Punkin" is so precious. I enjoyed your story.
Your narrative is great and you covered Patty's history skillfully with no awkward transitions. That takes a good writer.
