    My heart was saddened to hear about the passing of Pat, she was a true friend and a Woman of God. I could discuss things with her and she immediately quoted and gave me scriptures to encourage me. She was a faithful servant on the Dorothy Neal Collins Usher Board, and was proud to stand at her post. She also served on the Discipleship Team for several years, teaching new members about Baptism and what it meant to except Christ.
    Ray and Blink I close by saying your mother loved you both unconditionally. You two were her heart, and she loved the grandchildren too.
    Take your rest my friend, your work speaks for you. Love you.
