Dear Patsy and Family,

My prayers are with you in your mother's passing. Henderson introduced me to her, and we often talked when I ran into her out and about. It was always a pleasure to talk with her. In our conversations, we discovered that we had a connection through the Dooms family. My great aunt was married to John Dooms who was related to your mother. He even looked quite a bit like her. May God comfort you as you mourn your mother's death, and may the warm memories of times you enjoyed with her throughout the years sustain you in the days ahead.

I love seeing Mrs Merica “Lemons” hanging sheets on her clothes line she was as beautiful as a movie star and the Mother of my very good friend Patsy and her brother Tommy. Please except my deepest sympathy to you both and your families .
