Papa Joe and Family,
Mrs. Patsy was the best. It’s so very hard to believe she is gone. She had a heart of gold and truly loved her family. You just always knew she would be there if you had a problem or needed advice. She was always happy and showed so much love for everyone. Her grandkids were her life! Mrs. Patsy was honest, loving, and led a beautiful life making sure everyone else was taken care of at home or at the bicycle shop. She took care of everyone! Mrs. Patsy, thank you for loving me and taking care of me all throughout my school years with my bestest buddy, Danielle. You are now soaring with the beautiful angels from above, watching over us all. I love you and will forever miss you! ♥️

Joe, I am so sorry for you loss, I will miss my oldest and dearest friend tremendously. Ronnie, you were her heart and soul. I don't know how much you remember about our Disney World trip when you were probably 6 years old. You stepped on my heels all day and all we could do was laugh. The last time we talked she said she was so proud of the man you are. She said you are such a great husband, father and grandfather. Your mother was a dear friend and I can't imagine her not hearing her voice anymore. Catherine, Melanie and Mary, how do I express my sorrow to you ladies? 65 years of friendship. I will miss her, she was a beautiful person, inside and out. My sympathies to all of you. We have all lost an angel. May the grace of God get you all through this journey.

Ms Pat was truly an angel on earth. I haven’t seen her in a few years, but her infectious smile and welcoming spirit always made me feel like I was one of her children. She has deeply touched my heart. I’m praying for you all for Gods comfort and peace.

Much love, Julie

Dear friends,

Pat will be missed. She will stay in our hearts forever. We loved Pat so much. ❤️❤️❤️
She touched many lives for Jesus. 🙏🏼❤️🙏🏼
She was a woman who cared for those around her. So was thoughtful, kind, creative, loving, talented, intelligent and the list goes on. If anyone needed prayer, she was there. Thank you Pat for all you did for us. I will think of you and your loving family and cherish all the hand-made gifts you made for us. Can’t thank you enough. Pat had this contagious beautiful smile. She was always there for our family. Family was so important to her.

We had the honor of meeting Pat’s family at the family get togethers. So many members of her family have volunteered at Chalmette events. Wow! It was amazing. We enjoyed our times together. I thank the Lord that He gave Lionel and I the opportunity to spend time with these great couples Pat & Joe, Marilyn & Bobbie on a very memorable trip to Branson, Missouri.
Pat, you will be forever missed. We love you!

“Jesus said to her, ‘I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die; and whoever lives by believing in me will never die.’ Do you believe this?’”
—John 11:25-26

“His favor is for a lifetime. Weeping may tarry for the night, but joy comes with the morning.”
—Psalm 30:5

“God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging. There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God, the holy place where the Most High dwells...The Lord Almighty is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress. Come and see what the Lord has done...He says, ‘Be still, and know that I am God.’” —Psalm 46:1-4, 7-8, 10

❤️With love, Lionel and Tricia Machado
