Dear Patty and Family,
My heart is with you today - I only wish the rest of me could be with you to share my condolences. What a lovely picture, and what a striking resemblance to you, Patty. What a blessing all of you have been to her. I can only imagine how proud she was for all of you.
Sending love and prayers.Cathy

Dear Patty and family, I was so sad to read of Lucy's passing. She was quite a lady: she could be pretty scary to a couple of girls who were not following her rules, but as we grew older, she became a dear friend. A compliment from Lucy was always special. My favorite was, "Its good you're a little chubby, Barbara. It fills in the wrinkles." Memories will keep her alive in your hearts. Prayers for all.

I was so sorry to hear that your Mom passed away, Vicki. I always enjoyed visiting with your mom whenever I used to give my mom a ride in her wheelchair --- she was so easy to chat with! I also know that your Mom has been ready to die for quite some time, so that in combination with her strong faith must give you a lot of comfort! Please know that I will be praying for you and your family --- for a long time! With love, LeAnne
