  2. November 22 was one of the hardest day in my life, as I held your hand while you took your last breath. I know your in a good place dancing with angles and watching over us. December 4th will be even harder as I say goodbye until we meet again in heaven. I love you Nane !!

  3. Such a wonderful caring child of GOD. Patsy would give everything to help someone in need. Some people brighten a room when they enter, some brighten it when they leave the room. Patsy was always one to brighten a room (or a life) when she entered it.. Love ya

  4. Thank you to a very special lady that adopted my family about 36 years ago. She treated us like her own. There are not enough words to thank her for her love and what she has meant to us.
    She was more than a friend, she is family.
    Jamie, Vicki and family we are sorry for your loss.
    Thank you for sharing her with us. She will be missed and she will always live in our hearts.
    Thankfully we know where she is at now.
    With much love,
    Greg, Cindy, Christy and Christopher

  12. We never lose
    The ones we love
    Not even after death
    Their memories become
    Part of you
    Each heart beat Every breath
    Death is not the end
    Death is nothing to fear
    Death is only a servant of God
    Who leads us to heaven from here.

  13. Meme was the only grandmother I had the privilege of really knowing. She loved Chris and me so very much. There was not a birthday she missed or a milestone she was not there for. From Christmas celebrations to coffee dates, from visits at college to visits in her living room or front porch-lots of hugs and laughs and love. I’m thankful I was able to talk with you one more birthday this year and that I saved the last two birthday songs on my phone-I’ve replayed them several times already. I miss you and I love you. My life is richly blessed because you were a huge part of it. I know you’re with Jesus and having the time of your life. I’m going to miss you, but I look forward to seeing you again one day.

  14. Patsy was a strong willed woman of faith who was always on the go. We shared stories just 2 weeks ago. We just never know when it may be our last time together. Patsy & I shared in the love of Zoe’ It gave me joy to listen to Zoe’ telling stories of her spending the night at her None’s house with her cousin. She will be missed and never forgotten.
