To the Crites family,
I am so very sorry to read of Angie’s passing. What a beautiful picture of her! Just as I remembered her. Angie was a kind, thoughtful, loving and patient lady!! Quite a lady indeed! Our father, Harold Patty, was a letter carrier with Harold and our parents were friends with each other. We are all so very sorry for your loss. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all,
The Patty family children
