To My cousins Bill, Pam and Nancy and all your families, and Ruth and family, please know my heart is with you all tomorrow as you say a final farewell to such a wonderful lady! She always made me feel special anytime I saw her through the years:) I especially remember she took me to see my first indoor movie when I was about 10. We saw "The Birds" at the Barksdale Theater and I felt so grown up! And she didn't get to mad when we all jumped on the bed;) She will be missed.....Love and Prayers, Pat

MRS. Hattie Deville was the best cook at the camp at Toledo Bend. I remember back in the 80's many times visiting with her and her husband Clarence. The Devilles, Bourns, and Prices had a camp at Circle Drive Marina. We all visited together, ate together and told stories about the big fish that got away. MRS. Deville always had something awesome to eat. Nancy I don't know if you remember me or not. It's been many years ago. Your Moma was a very special lady. My condolences to you and the family.

I remember the many years that Aunt Hattie and Uncle Clarence would host the whole family for Thanksgiving at their camp on Toledo Bend Lake. I lost count of how many trailers were connected together to make up “The Camp”. There always seemed to be a place for everybody to sleep and Aunt Hattie and my mother in law Ruth( Hattie’s sister) always managed to keep us well fed.My first time at the camp I immediately took note of a new family dynamic . Hattie being Ruth’s older sister(by 7 years) could “boss Ruth around. “ My 2 best memories about Aunt Hattie were smelling the fried fish before you walked in the front door- you knew A. Hattie was working her magic in the kitchen . The second best memory was A. Hattie ‘s Christmas gifts.- a crisp green $10.00 bill. We couldn’t wait to go to Walmart in Mansfield on Black Friday to shop . One of the treasures that Joey and I choose at the magnificent Mansfield Walmart was a nativity set . It was a cute, non- frufru, made in China set. Every year it claims space among our 125 nativities — front and center in a starlite stable in the middle of our mantel. Aunt Hattie your star will shine brightly on our mantle every year and I will whisper a prayer of gratitude for my years as your niece.
