  • I rejoice in having known Pattie. She taught me about the bible and how to treat others right. I now teach children Sunday School myself. I hope that I do half as good a job as she did. My prayers are with Betty and her family. God bless you all. I am shocked that Herbert died shortly after her, but I am confident that they are together in a better place with God as I write this.
