Anybody that knew Patsy or as we all lovingly called her Granny or Mom knew they met someone that was special. When her first grand child was born she was nicknamed Granny and it just stuck with her from then on for friends or family alike. If someone introduced her as Patsy, she would tell them just call me Granny. Granny had three favorite hobbies her family, crocheting and quilting. She loved her kids, grandkids and great grandkids unconditionally and loved the fact that she got to live out her last years in Texas with them. She said it was what kept her young and happy. If you ever crossed her paths with her for any length of time you wound up with either a crocheted afghan or a quilt. Her treasures are scattered across family, friends and anyone she loved or anyone that she felt needed a hug and something cuddly once in a while.
She would ask sometimes why she was still here on this earth when so many of her family and friends were already wrapped in the arms of Jesus. She so wanted to be back with Brice again. We would tell her because her work here was not done, she had children, grandchildren and great grand children that loved and needed her to keep us in line. Finally it was her time, she went peacefully in her sleep back into the arms of Jesus with Brice standing there waiting on her. On one hand we are sad but on the other hand we are happy because now we know she is as happy as happy can be.
