My memories of Patsy will always involve children. For years she loved and cherished so many children through our preschool department at church. Later she would never fail to ask me how my son, her little Beau was. Such a dear sweet lady.

We were back door neighbors for years, I have lived here since 1964. Very seldom would see or hear her, We tried not to be too loud, when our kids were growing up.

Let me know if you anything, cell #410-8484, Bill
