Dear, sweet Aunt Patsy was such a very special lady. She always made those around her feel comfortable and relaxed. When we took my Dad / her brother to see her a couple years, because of how she treated us, we felt immediately at home with her, even though it had been too many years since we had seen her! My parents both adored her, and my mother loved Patsy as much as if she were her own sister. I have never forgotten that on a busy day for Patsy, that she and her sister (Genelle) traveled for several hours each way to visit with me in the waiting room at Baptist, during my Dad's 8-hour surgery. That is how she was, always thinking of others, always kind - living out the words of the "Love Book" of 1 Corinthians! For everyone who had the blessing of being in Aunt Patsy's life, our lives were enriched. The world was a better place because she was in it.

I will always treasure the memories of Aunt Patsy and her daddy, our pawpaw, singing at the piano at Christmas. She was a very special lady who lived a life reflecting the love she had for Jesus. May the God of all comfort be close to cousins Leslie and Marie and their families.
