  1. I am so sorry to hear of Patty’s death. God certainly got a sweet angel when he took her! You all are in my prayers and I love you!

  2. Patty there is not enough room here to tell of all the richness our friendship with you has contained. We raised our kids together, taught them in Sunday School and VBS together, Boosted the Band together and rejoiced in their college and young adult accomplishments together. You blessed our daughters’ weddings by assuming the role of “The Wedding Planner.” And what can I say about Bell Choir that the rest have not already said. It was a Blast and a blessing. You worked for Thomas McLendon for years and that should have earned you a whole treasure chest of stones for your Crown. Gonna miss you, my friend…a LOT. We are here to love on Larry and Susan and Sally and those wonderful grandsons! And all we ask of you is to save us a place near you at the Great Table. I can only imagine….

    Godspeed, my friend.

    Thomas and Becky McLendon

Hugs and prayers for all of you. I was blessed to have her as a friend.
