We loved to hear Patsy give her inspiring testimony in church and to hear her sing. We loved her and will miss her. Claude, Peggy and the rest of the family, may Almighty God hold you close during this time and give you comfort and courage to smile through your tears and thank Him that Patsy is well at last.
