I'm going to miss you more than you know Patsy. 34 years ago I couldn't have told anyone were you worked or what you did. But you became my mentor and working in insurance for you has meant so much to me. Who would have thought when I started at AIG in 79 we would both have the opportunities and experiences we did. Not only are you my Aunt but you became my friend and coconspirator in may adventures. Thank you for the great memoris, you are at home now with J.T. Love you PK Pam Davis, May 8, 2012 Patsy was my only sister-in-law on my side of the family & i'll miss her dearly, but i am happy that she is now with J.T. in heaven. He was the love of a lifetime & she missed him so much. God bless & keep you. Wilma Jo Davis, May 8, 2012
