My thoughts and prayers go out to Sue and the rest of Patsy's family and friends. I grew up around the corner from Patsy and Sue and, although I was younger, I still remember dancing with Patsy at the old community center across from Parkview Baptist Church. Patsy's smile is lighting up the sky as I type this. God Bless you all.

It was such a surprise to me when I heard Patsy had passed away. I understand how painful this must be for you. I will remember Patsy for her warmth and kindness to me and everyone she met. She always had a smile, a laugh that was contagious and loving words to say about her family . She was a very special lady.
Please be comforted by the thought that many people hold fond memories of Patsy. She touched many lives, including mind. .
To quote from Kahil Gibran - "When you are sorrowful, look into your heart, and you shall see that in truth you are weeping for that which has been your delight."
My thoughts and prayers are with you.

Patsy was such a kind-hearted, fun-loving soul who would do anything for anybody in need. When Patsy told a story or a joke, everyone stopped to listen because you knew it was going to be hilarious. If not for the content of the story or punch line of the joke, for her mannerisms and expressions as she spoke. Patsy was truly a wonderful person and friend and will be missed. My thoughts and prayers go out to Bobby, Kedre, Kandes and their respective families.
