Even though we are mourning right now, the bible says that joy comes in the morning! We know she is celebrating in heaven with loved ones that have gone before her. Patsy was a caring, giving person often helping her church and others. She will be greatly missed and we have many nice memories of her life and family. My favorite verse says, “The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing, (new international version). Indeed Patsy lacks absolutely nothing in heaven, everything has been given to her through the cross and sacrifice of Jesus!
