Patsy, I'm sorry for the loss of your sister. I thought so much of her ever since we met at her Baptism with her husband. There were several people baptised that day, including my son, Jamie
Winningham. It was a beautiful baptising. Phyllis & I talked a lot on facebook. She was so sweet, with a heart full of love! I passed her house a lot going to cemetary. My husband is burried close to their graves. We'd keep an eye out for each other's flowers and headstone. That was very comforting to me.. I'm going to really miss watching for her in the summer mowing her grass. I loved her for who she was, a good Christian woman that enjoyed helping anyone! She has sure earned her angel wings. Prayers for all her family.
