    So sorry for your loss. Life is a journey of sweetness and sorry, Of yesterday’s memories and hopes for tomorrow, Of pathways we face with patience and humor, courage and grace, Of joys that we’ve shared and of people we’ve met who have touched us in ways we will never forget. Patsy was one of those people that touched my life in such a positive way. Although no words of symphathy can ease the loss you bear, Still, may you find some comfort knowing others truly care.
