To Traci, family, relatives & friends, Patsy is a wonderful woman.  When we would see each other, she was always up & with a smile.  Traci & Patsy are very much alike with beng up & always with a smile.  Patsy is a real good strong woman that always took care of her loves & family.  I feel sure that she will do the same in heaven anytime God needs her to help out.  Patsy's earth life may be over, but her best life in heaven just started, where she is with her loves & all is good.  Our prayers are with you all.  This sweet lady will always be loved & will always be missed forever.  With all of our love, R.I.P. Patsy.

Carolyn McCarley, April 19, 2018 Traci & Allyson, my heart aches for you both. I know you must be lost. I loved Patsy Ruth! She welcomed me into her home and her heart when mom was sick and I will never forget her laugh and how beautiful she was. She put up with alot from us. I remember her laughing at me when I told her I could f--t anytime I wanted to. She adored you two. Yall could do no wrong in her eyes. She was a great mom and a great second mom as well. My heart goes out to you both. I know you will miss her love. She couldn't have loved yall any more. I hope you will find peace in all the great memories she left behind. God bless you both. Genea
Genea Heather , April 19, 2018 Traci, no words can express what it is like to lose a parent. You and I both know that oh too well. Patsy was such a special person. I can still hear her laughter in my head. I can also hear her saying to you and I "girls you better calm down in there". I am so glad you and I had that close bond that cousins do! You would always make fun of me because I always brushed my hair out every night 100 times. You would say "mamma she is at it again". Then your mom's sweet laugh would come. We always had a great time with your mom and her laughter. You know that I am here for you any time of the day or night! I love you Traci! We will all miss Patsy! She is laughing in heaven now. R.I.P. Patsy!
