Just found out about Patsy. Breaks my heart. She was such a sweet, loving person. So sorry we had not stayed in touch in recent years. We were born about 2 weeks apart at Casa Serena hospital in Bunavista and were like brother and sister growing up next door to one another. Rest in peace sweet Patsy....I love you!

Patsy and I worked many years together at Lake Meredith. I looked forward to going to work, but that might have been to see who could find or get into the most mischief. I am sorry I cannot be there for her services. I will be remembering the family in my prayers. She was one fine lady.
