I knew Pat in high school. We were in the class of 1965. Although I didn't know her well, I remember we were in some classes together possibly chorus. What i do remember is her voice. The voice was southern and calming. I can also see her walking to class. She was a splendid person.

Pat sat next to me in English class. She was so quiet, but we found out we were both born in March and that brought us together. I thought she was so pretty! Iโ€™m so happy that she went on to have such a beautiful family and I know she is right this minute making up for lost time with those she had lost.

Oh My sweet granny Pat, i loved you so much. I will miss dropping by to sit with you and you slide me winning lotto tickets and tell me make sure i get some gas and that i better be staying away from boys (at 35 years old) lol. I will miss picking on you for your bad habbits and you telling me oh Joy Marie just go to bed lol. I recall you taught me when I was small how to read my first book Thomas The choo choo train. I also recall when you'd pull that shot gun out when you would hear a noise outside and yell outside whos out here! And when I ran away as a kid you rolled up with that same shot gun asking everyone down the back road had they seen me. Lol or how you always hair spray that bee hive up when i was a kid. Haha.

Every moment weโ€™ve spent with you we are grateful for. Too many amazing memories to choose from. Many that stick out are our family beach trips. Always lots of laughs, and quality time spent not worried about anything besides spending time together and watching the sun set and rise over the water. Your favorite thing to do was sit on your balcony and enjoy the peace and quiet on our trips. You were always a mountain girl but we managed to turn you into a beach goer after all and you enjoyed it!
So many good memories.

Granny

God looked around his garden
and found an empty space.
Then he looked down upon this earth
And saw your tired face.
He put his arms around you
And lifted you to rest.
Godโ€™s garden must be beautiful
He only takes the best.

I will always love you granny, we all will. ๐Ÿ’œ

I'm so sorry for your loss to Tammy and Angie, Dale , and Travis and and all who Pat treated as her children throughout life. I know she was so loved and will truly be missed. And I am sending my hugs and prayers and the strength to get you all through this really hard time. I know, first hand the pain of losing your mother and all I can add is that even though it feels like your heart is breaking into and you can't breath right now, time does heal the pain.
Love to you all and Rest in Peace Aunt Pat. Love you all.
