    Pat and I used to be sister-in-laws before we divorced and she was nice and she was going to nursing school when I met her. When she became a nurse she loved it. We had having handicapped daughter’s in common. I pray for you everyday Emily. I would see you at your mamaws house sometimes and you are a beautiful girl, you and Brittany look a lot alike. Your mamaw loved you girls she enjoyed you all staying with her. I am so sorry you lost your mom and will continue to pray for you. I never got to meet Pat’s husband, but I ran into her a few times and she seemed happier than I’ve ever seen her so my heart goes out to her husband too. Pat and Emily were very lucky to have you and I will be praying for you as well. God Bless.

    I want to say that I am so very sorry and shocked to hear of Pat’s passing. I saw her at Lloyd Puetts funeral and it was there that I learned that Joe had recently passed. I miss a lot living so far away but I will certainly be praying for you and all your family. We understand multiple losses and want to encourage you that with Christ all things are possible.

    I am so sad to hear of Pat’s passing. I have such wonderful memories from high school-Pat was always roll in the floor funny and she had such great energy. My heart goes out to the family and all that knew her. I know she will be sorely missed to all but I know Heaven is a brighter place with her there.

    Dana, Emily and family,
    It breaks my heart to hear about Pat passing. We went to school together and several months ago I delivered a wreath to her and it was so good to see her and I am so thankful for our visit. Please know that you all are in my thoughts and prayers!
    Love to you all,
    Sherry (Stone) Stair
