Dear Leon, Brenda, and Gwen,

What a sad day! I was so sorry to hear of your sweet Mama’s death.
I hold nothing but fond and wonderful memories of her. Her laugh, her smile, her kindness.
My Mama sure did love her, and called Patricia one of her very best friends my whole life.....Mama made sure we got to know Patricia through the years by taking us around her every chance she had when we were all growing up. And we were blessed because of it.
The world lost a good one!
Much Love to all,
Karen White
