A beautiful, sweet, sincere lady who is dearly missed. I've known Mrs. Pate since I was in elementary school, her daughter being my best friend. I am greatly saddened over her untimely death but I know she is with our father. I pray for peace and guidance for the family in this time of need. A special prayer noted for my best friend, Tammy, God shower her with your love and light..give her the strength she needs in the days to come.
With love,
