When my nephew Kevin Bledsoe, shared with me about Patsy's passing, my thoughts instantly went to fond memories of family conversations and taco gatherings, with lots of children playing happily! Included in those sweet memories were fun conversations between Cecil and Patsy - typically Cecil's comments and the look on Patsy's face with a soft opinion, followed by Cecil's great laugh! Lasting memories to cherish!
To Tami, Doug & Teresa - treasured memories will keep your loved ones in your heart forever! And to Sue, Joy, Butch, Bob, and extended family members, I am so sorry for your lose! Hold close the cherished memories.
Will surround you with prayers. May HIS peace settle in your heart!
Sending love,
Mary Ann Pribyl Spears
