Always Patsy....

Patsy was always Patsy! She always put everyone else's needs and preferences ahead of her own. She always maintained a strong “I'm fine” exterior, even if she was silently struggling inside. She always loved unconditionally with her whole heart – especially her family. Her family was her whole heart and there was nothing she would not do or sacrifice for any of them. She always wore a crazy smile, sported her “uniquely Patsy” funny ways and laughed contagiously. And only Patsy, 70 years young, could still always impress with an unassisted head stand. There has never been and will never be another wife, mother, sister, daughter or friend quite like her; she leaves an irreplaceable void. If you knew her, you loved her and will remember always, Patsy.

So sorry for your loss. I remember Pat as always a bubbly personality. I recall visiting her when she was a teenager and quite sick that she was still full of life. She showed her aunts Mildred and Dot how she could stand on her head. An amazing person. Jerry Murrell.

It's so hard to believe that Patsy has gone to be with our Lord. We spoke of family in Sunday School just 4 days ago. A wonderful woman that will be greatly missed. Prayers to all of the family.

Mom I love you so very much. I don't know how my life can go on without you because I am lost without you. I will always cherish the good times we had.

What a sweet, caring person Mrs Patsy was. I always loved getting my hug from her at church. She loved her family! Her legacy will live on in her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. She will be greatly missed!
