Patsy, your mom was such a happy lady with a great smile. She always made me feel special, like I was a daughter too--and those cheese straws-yummy--I enjoyed our visits with her as we journeyed to and from the Beach and here in Atlanta. I will miss her very much, but know for sure she is with the Lord. Hugs to you and the family. Judee Bianco

Patsy, I have really missed your mother from our days at Ingleside. She made the best caramel cake I have ever eaten. It was always a favorite at our covered dish luncheons. She gave so much of herself and her love to the Brake Class as well as to the entire church. I recall the place she always sat and remember when we connected how we knew each other through you. May God hold you close for no matter how long we have our mothers, it is never long enough.

Sorry to hear of Mary's passing. She was such a great lady. I lived across the hall from her at Magnolia Manor. We had some good times together. May the Lord give you peace and comfort at this time. Fay Burgamy
