My name is Mike Kessinger, and I am blessed, to be married to my wonderful wife Bridget, and to be a part of Aunt Patsy Egler's family. Patsy and I shared many long talks, on our family, our faith, and our friends, which Patsy's list was very long. She always shared her views and kindness , as she did with each person in her life. I am a life long musician, and everytime I performed with my band, and played in our area where Patsy could attend, she was always there, no matter what, and I always included her special songs, and they were always, just for her, each and every time, as to see her face light up with that great big smile would make our songs mean so much more, just because she was there with us. When you can share your life with someone, with Patsy's faith, it makes believing so much more than anyone could imagine. Our whole family will miss her so very much that it would be hard to try to explain in words, or even in a song. We would always see Patsy on her daily walks at St. Mary's of The Knobs, and she would always stop her walking, and take time to talk with Bridget and myself, and make us both feel as it was a special blessing for that day, and we could never repay her for those special memories, that we will always hold dear to our hearts. Bridget is so very sad as I am on her passing but even Heaven will be a better place with Patsy being there and watching over all of us. In my closing I will only say, "Dear Aunt Patsy," This last Song is Dedicated ,just for You", for the happiness that you brought to this world. God bless you Patsy, We truly miss , and love you, Mike, Bridget and Molly Kessinger and all of our family

I'm sorry for your loss...How blessed we were to have such wonderful mothers. I have you. Doris Ann & Denise in my thoughts and prayers....Your parents were the best and you and your sisters are their total pride. How totally wonderful they were....She is now at peace and looks as beautiful, as when I first met her. I pray that she died with you girls by her side and with her dignity.
Seasons change, friends move away, And life goes on from day to day.
Flowers fade and streams go dry...And many times we wonder why.
Yet we can always be assured, Because God tells us in his Word,
That unlike changes in the weather
LOVE GOES ON AND LASTS FOREVER!
I hope you all find your peace....
For God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power, love & self control. I am back home where I should have stayed.
God Bless You All!!! plus Aunt Clarissa said please David stop by and see her sometime. I honestly Love You ALL... Lynnette
