Kraft, the wife of owner Robert Kraft, died July 20 after a battle with cancer. She was 68.

A patch with the initials MHK will be placed on the upper left chest portion of team uniforms starting with Thursday's pre-season opener against the Jacksonville Jaguars to recognize Myra Kraft's charitable efforts.

She managed the Robert and Myra Kraft Family Foundation and was president of the New England Patriots Charitable Foundation, which contributed millions of dollars to area charities.

The organization will honor her with a moment of silence before the regular season home opener on Sept. 18 against the San Diego Chargers.
