I celebrated your birthday today in my heart. Thank you for looking down on us and smiling that beautiful smile. Love your "daugther" Vennie"
"Happy birthday mommy..you are greatly missed every day; today was especially hard for all of us. We celebrated your birthday today, same as we have every year. It was extra special because it's Resurrection Day.I don't recall your birthday ever falling on Easter Sunday before. It was a blessed day. Thank you Lord for all the years you blessed us with our dear mother..and thank You for what you did for us on the cross, and for rising on the third day, just as you said you would..because you live , we live!! We miss you so much mommy, but we know that to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord..I love you pretty p, ALWAYS...Nae'"

"Hi mommy. Was just thinking about how much you loved the holidays. I was no scrooge but your absence (only in the physical) has made me passionate for all things YOU! So thank you for all the lessons you taught without ever trying ~ just simply being you ~ our hand-picked angel from Jehovah. Love and miss you more than words could begin to express. xoxo"
"I miss you, pretty p...thank you for being such a blessing to all of us..no one else like you in the world...thank you Lord for blessing us with your beautiful daughter, Patricia. You gave us the best mom in the world, and I am forever grateful to You..
I just wanted to say my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during this time and always. Thank you for sharing so many wonderful stories and memories with me about your mother. I feel blessed.
"Thinking about my Mom, missing those phone calls and hearing her beautiful voice. What an amazing woman and mother but most of all, an amazing Woman of God and I am so thankful that I was blessed with her for 50+ years."
It's been 10 long days now that you went home to be with Jesus. Though I miss you very much, each day brings more peace...because I know it was God's will. The day before you passed, early that morning, we came together and joined hands and Sam led us in prayer. We asked for not our wills but for God's will to be done. We worshipped and praised Him, He told us then that He would not leave us comfortless, or as orphans. We know that God's word is true!!!! We know that ALL things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose. I thank God for the time He blessed us with you. And I'm not mad with Him for wanting His beautiful daughter back with Him. You and I had many talks about going home and praying that Jesus would return soon. I know how the things going on in this wicked world grieved your spirit, and I'm glad you're not here to see it as it worsens. I pray that God will give each of us the grace to be the people He created us to be and you raised us to be.
See you later, my beauty......I LOVE YOU!!!!!!! Nae"
I miss you ,girl...You are such an amazing woman of God. People are still talking about your beautiful memorial and how they were inspired by the heartfelt expressions of love and adoration for you. So inspired, that they went home and returned to work and told their spouses and co-workers about it. Your warm spirit filled the room, mommy. You're grandchildren touched many hearts with their tearful expressions of their love for their one of a kind grandma. The soloists that sang 2 of your favorite songs, sounded like angels.....TO GOD BE THE GLORY....THANK YOU LORD....HOW GREAT THOU ART!!!!!!!"
I can see your sweet smile and hear your precious, angelic voice throughout the day. You know how heavily I relied upon your faith, strength, wisdom, but most importantly, your love to get me through each day. I often told you how I aspired to be the woman of God and mother that you have been. Thank you for all the life lessons you taught by simply being you - our angel on earth. I am at peace because you are peace. Love you endless... Kay"
"You are so right Bee. She was smiling even while she was sick in the hospital and couldn't talk days just before she went home. I wasn't there but she was probably smiling the day she passed. I love and miss her so much. I was reading a letter she wrote me and was encouraged all over again. She is directly responsible for helping me love God because she loved Him so much. She was and is such a wonderful example. I thank God for her. She is still living because she had become a part of me. I took her in my soul. I love you AUNT PATTY!!!!"
"I the few times I have seen her in the past 25 years, the think I always saw and will miss the most is her smile. She was always smiling."
"To my Sisters/Brother/Cousins
As we have all gotten older and moved to different states and have busy lives, one things is for sure we may not talk as often as we use to, but we are always in each others thoughts and in each others hearts.
Please know that we feel your lost as well Aunt Pat will never be forgotten as long as we have our fond memories of her life she was always so sweet and pleasant to be around she had a smile to light the room and was very soft spoken. And she could cook too. She leaves her legacy of strong young women and men, she may be gone but will never be forgotten. R.I.P. Auntie love you much.
"Dearest Aunt Patty, I wasn't physically at your memorial service today, but I was there in spirit. Your beautiful children, my sisters and brother, shared the joyous and beautiful occasion with me. I am so happy for your legacy. I love you dear Aunt Patty. Thank you for blessing me always and taking me in your heart as daughter. You are sorely missed. I look forward to seeing you again in heaven. I'LL ALWAYS LOVE YOU. Vennie"
"Your memorial service was absolutely beautiful today mommy! I hope you knew how many lives you touched and how much you were loved. Your loving kindness was felt by many and not forgotten. Although you are absent physically, you will live on in our hearts. Your prayers have been answered, God has given you the desires of your heart. Thank you for all your sacrifices, everything you taught us, and for being an example of what a true woman of God is . You will never be forgotten!!! I love you, pretty p....ALWAYS!!!!! Nae'"

"She was such a beautiful person, someone I always looked up to. I saw her more as my mother than my grandma. We had a special connection that ill never forget. I know she will be watching over all of us in a way she always wished she could and now can"
"I met Karren's Mom over 25 years ago when I was invited over for dinner. Pat made a delicious meal with collard greens seasoned with bacon fat. And I always remembered that and how much I loved Collard Greens. That was my first time tasting them. And to this day whenever I make them, even though I don't use bacon fat, I always think of her mom. I know that your mom will watch over all of you and you will always feel her love and guidance around you. Thank you for letting me share these memories with you."
"There are no words to convey how much I miss you.Though my heart is aching, it is also filled with joy, because I know you are with the Lord.I thank God for giving us the best mom in the world. For the time that we had together, and for the millions of wonderful memories I will forever cherish in my heart. I LOVE YOU MOMMY, ALWAYS!!!!!! Nae'"
