Donna & I are so sorry to here about Patsy. I am just now getting the news. Please know that we are praying for Raymond and the entire family. Apologies for the late response. Robert Blankenship, April 7, 2018 I am so sorry to hear about my Avon friend passing. Pat was one of my loyal customers & always welcomed me into her home. This was back in the 70s & 80s. Her house always smelled so clean & that impressed me so much. I lived down the street from her on Meadows Drive. We loved talking about our children. I moved to East Texas 20 years ago & lost touch with her but never forgot her. My thoughts & prayers are with Pat's family. She is probably cleaning those streets of gold now. My love to you all. Betty Spearman Betty Spearman, October 8, 2017 Amy- I am so terribly sorry to hear about your mom. I remember her well during the many times you and I would play together when we lived down the street. I do remember what an amazing job she did on your hair because I always loved your ringlets. Our prayers are with you all. Becca Supan, October 5, 2017 To All The Family: May God wrap HIS comfort blanket around each one of you and give you peace and comfort during this most difficult time. God bless all of you! Cary and Marge Mack, October 4, 2017 We will miss you Patsy. Rest in Peace. We love you! Tommy and Debbie Mack, October 4, 2017
