  7. Heaven just gained an angel. Patty you touched a lot of lives especially mine, leaving an imprint, now a scar that I will forever cherish. You were a firm but loving boss, humble, caring, God-fearing, empathetic and smart as a whip, always laughing ( I hear it in my memory now). I prayed so much for you, I guess God has other plans for you. You are always on my mind and will remain in my heart. Sleep well my dear friend and boss for life.

  8. Dearest Patty
    God looked around his garden and found an empty place. He then looked down on earth and saw your tired face. He put his arms around you and lifted you to rest. God’s garden must be beautiful he always takes the best.
    He saw the road was getting rough and the hills were hard to climb, so he closed your weary eyes and whispered peace be thine. It broke my heart to lose you but you didn’t go alone for a piece of my heart went with you the day God called you home.
    Sleep in peace Patty I will always remember your kind words of wisdom and encouragement and your smile that always lighted my days.
