Patsy and family so sorry for your loss, I know you were really close family. I had missed seeing you and Jerry Don out for a while and wondered what was wrong. I remember the days when we were all young. You were a neighbor and you and Jerry Don were my class mates. May God give you comfort during this sad time. Saundra
