I am truly blessed and I’m so happy I have a personal relationship with God. Jesus is my personal Lord and Savior. I love all of my brothers and sisters. I thank God I met the Spratleys, Nightengales, Mortens and Nobles. Sandra, Phillip, Stan and Vance I will miss you. St. John’s Baptist Church and Mt. Pleasant Baptist Church gave me my direction. Pinky you really hung in there with me, thank you. Things that make me smile are talking to God and thinking about God. Being with family. I am proudest of being a Thomas and my sons Mike and James. I enjoy hand dancing, western movies, attending church and reading books.”
Patrice loved wearing plaid clothes, listening to oldies but goodies, playing basketball and telling corny jokes.
