    Till we meet again cousin Pat I will hold you in my heart. Although we hadn’t seen much of each other for years, you were much loved by me and all our family members. Knowing you will be with your family up in heaven makes my burden of missing you so much easier to bear. Sing and praise God till we meet again on the other side.

  2. Alice Canny says:

    Pat became a dear friend from the moment we met. I never heard a harsh word come out of her mouth, though she would tell you she could get angry. I can’t imagine that!Her smile would light up a room. And I will never forget the joy she showed when she was finally strong enough to be able to sing a solo at church. She loved Jesus, her family, her church family and always had a kind word for all. I miss you, Pat!

  3. Carol Jenkins says:

    Pat and her sister were in a Precept Bible Study at Olive Baptist Church with me. Both ladies added so much joy to our study of the Bible. I know whenever we gather again,she will be missed by our ladies. (I never realized that Pat was a member of Ensley FBC which has been instrumental in feeding many homeless people). Prayers of comfort, Carol Jenkins
