My memory of Pat will always be of the wonderful person she was. I knew her for many, many years. We played cards and had wonderful times together. I will always remember her and miss her.

Surely there is a bowling team in Heaven and your Pat and my little momma will be there for every game!
You are in my prayers.

Little Patty was a favorite from the day she was born. Alway a smile and a hug. Sorry I have lost track of her all these years. Larry always kept me knowledgeable of her activities even when I was overseas or in some other state. Darrel
