Jacque Poston Waddell, August 10, 2009 I would have to write a book if I put down the many memories I have that Patsy was a part of. The years living in the "triangle" of friends (Patsy, Dorothy, and myself)as we raised our young children. No one could beat Patsy out in the morning to hang clothes on the line - - she was a "gung ho" early riser. The many years around the bridge table - her fabulous cooking and beautiful presentation - such a lovely hostess. She was always sweet, always considerate, always there in the times of need, always beautiful inside and out, a wonderful wife, mother, and daughter. She will be missed by so many but we were so blessed to have had her in our lives. Amy and Tommy, I hope it makes it easier for each of you to know how much she was loved by so many. Martha Woods, August 10, 2009 amy and tommy; sorry to hear of your mom passing away. i have many fond memories on peachtree lane. could she make a great cinamon roll. lots of calories. i will always remember her kind spirt; and especially being a great friend to my parents. i thought you might want to know that both ben and mom are out of town and unable to attend the service. i plan on being there on wednesday. sincerely david whisenant. david whisenant, August 10, 2009 Patsy was a beautiful "lady" in every sense of the word, inside and out. One could feel the love, warmth, and kindness when in her presence. I will forever cherish the many, many special memories of her and hold them close to my heart. I feel I have been enriched for having been a part of her and her family. She will be forever missed. Much love, Michelle Michelle Allen, August 10, 2009 Patsy and my cousin, Elizabeth Ray Ragsdale were classmates all thru school. I was 4 years old when they were seniors and they tolerated me and took me places with them. I adored Patsy. Tom was my family's banker. I am so sorry to hear of Patsy's passing. God bless all of you at this sad time. She was such a beautiful, sweet woman. I will miss her, too. Mary Virginia Holcomb Dickerson, August 10, 2009
