My condolences go out to the Patton family. My first year at Roosevelt High School I took sewing and didn't finish all my projects. I had to attend summer school. Ms. Patton was my teacher. It was there that everything clicked and came together. I still sew and I owe it all her. I remember seeing and talking to her for the first time since then at Ms. Hall's wake. She still had such a sweet spirit. Rest in peace, Ms. Patton. and God bless you for all the lives you touched.

My deepest condolences to the Patton family. Olivia Patton was a lovely Lady. Lovely in every way, if you complimented her, she made sure that in someway she returned the compliment. Refined is a word that best describes her. I feel honored to have worked beside her as a colleague at Roosevelt High School. May GOD grant your family comfort and peace as you remember her.
