Mrs Pat was so precious to us and our Mama, Velma Davis. Mama loved going by and visiting with her, and riding to church together. One of my favorite memories of her was her out of this world Potato Salad. She told me how she did it but, mine was never as good. I just know my Mama, Mrs. Pat, Mrs Mozelle, Mrs Beulah, and a host of others are rejoicing together!

I can't begin to tell you how much I loved Aunt Pat. She welcomed me into the Yates family when Allen and I began dating in 1975. She always made me feel like one of her own. She will surely be missed. So sorry I can't make the Memorial Service but I had an out of town trip planned. I will keep the family in my thoughts and prayers.

Love, Kay Yates Newberry
