    Walter, Jackie, Lu Ann and Debbie,

    I am so sorry for your loss. May God provide you with comfort and healing. Your Mom was so very special to me and so many. She provided a loving home for you and she was so gracious to open her home to us neighborhood kids. Never did she say no when we graced her doorway. Taking her turn at driving us to school, taking us to the pool in Lebanon or putting up with us when we had our disagreements over some lame game, she never turned us away. She made growing up in Kirklin so much better and she raised three very wonderful daughters. God Bless your Mother and you.

    In Christ’s Love,

    Patsy was truly a remarkable woman. She was always smiling or had words of wisdom when I worked with all of you at the grocery store. I will never forget all the good times we had at the store. I will keep you all in my prayers. May God bless you and comfort you.
