|Don't grieve for me, for now I'm free.|
"Patti, I'm so sad to hear of your passing. Even after all these years I still picture you sitting on the wood bench outside of Miss DeMarlo's 5th grade classroom. When we spoke last you were so hopeful and that life had turned a corner. It's like time had not passed and we laughed like those two grade school girls. May you rest in peace and may your family take comfort that you experienced a life well lived."
"Patty you came into my life as a new employee and quickly became a good ad life long friend. I love talking to u about our grand kids and laughing with you about daily life. Love you Patti and will miss you. I know you are with the Lord watching over us."
"David and Family,
Our hearts go out to you with our deepest condolences. So very sad to hear of Patti's passing Wishing you peace and light."
"Patti Jo, thank you for forgiving me, for finding it in you so we could both have peace in our hearts. thank you for always being loving, strong and brave. Thank you for teaching me the power of forgiveness and finding it in your heart to do so with me. Please lay peacefully with the Angels and our father. Please walk with us, all who's lives you touched. God bless your soul."
"Hey Mom, I know we didn't have a lot of memories but the times we did have were time well spent. Sitting on chairs in front of your garage was a pivotal moment for me. I always see the best parts of your soul shine through David and Britni. Your daughter has changed my life for the better and her own as well and I know that one day her and I will make you proud of our accomplishments!
P.S. I'm sorry I was being loud the other day. I promise my best to keep the noise level to a minimum! :)
-- love you Moms,
May your soul be free and your pain no more."

Your spirit will always be felt and don't forget to send a humming bird around to let us know your near. Thank you for being apart of my life."

"Dear Patti Jo~ I will always remember your beautiful smile, your laugh and all the goofy fun times we had in high school. Thank you for being a part of my life. Thank you for your encouraging words. May you rest in peace."
"Patti was so kind and trusting. I ached for her sadness and poor health. I have many memories and conversations to remember to keep her alive in my mind for a long time to come. Patti's goodness will be expressed by her friends and family who care and how they will live their lives. A legacy of doing for others certainly will be a testimony to Patti Jo."
"Patti Jo ... Oh how this breaks my heart. You will always be a true treasure to me and I appreciate all of your love and support. Sleep well my friend and roam free."
"Dear Cousin Patti Jo, you will always be that beautiful teenager that use to come visit NC. I remember you swinging me around by my arms in Uncle Wayne's front yard. I will remember you happy and heathy and not suffering. Uplifting the kids and David in prayer. Fly like a hummingbird"
"Patti.....I am saddened to my core. You were one of the strongest, fiestiest women I ever had the privileged of knowing. I am so happy that you are out of pain and heattache but that means I am also heartbroken I don't get to talk to you and laugh with you. I pray for your family in this most difficult time. I love u and every time I see hummingbirds I will believe u came to visit me. I'm at a loss. God bless"
"I still can't believe this is real... My heart hurts knowing we won't see your smile or get to hug you again. I know you are finally free of the pain and you don't have to fight anymore. I'm going to miss everything.. The long talks, the amazing advice, our beach trips, the tears and the smiles. Cameron is doing better than I am .. He hurts too but he keeps reminding me you aren't hurting anymore. Thank you Patti for always being there for us.. For all the little things and the big. You are an amazing person and there is not enough words to tell you how grateful I am to have had you in my life. We love you to the moon and back!!!"
"Patti you will be missed , since becoming your FB friend three years ago , I have enjoyed our communication. You were such an inspiration to me and definitely an encouragement in my more challenging times. Even in your illness you continued in your faith and helped others draw strength from you . It's now your time to rest , yes ! Rest in Jesus ! To God be the Glory! In Him ............ Star Settles, Augusta , Georgia"
"Patti. I don't know where to start. Since the moment we met I felt like I could tell you anything. You listened, didn't judge and always knew the right thing to say. We've been through a lot together and no matter what we always found our way back to each other. The last time I saw you was your birthday and you were glowing. The most beautiful woman and so full of love and light. I will never forget that night and our last hug and kiss. Knowing I won't see you again breaks my heart but I know that your at peace now and no longer in pain and that makes my heart at ease. Being lucky enough to know you, let alone be apart of your family has been one of the greatest gifts I will ever have and I will love u forever. You will be truly missed mama and never forgotten. I love you!!!!!!$"
