"The moment that you died my heart was torn in two. One side filled with heartache, the other died with you. I often lay awake at night when the world is fast asleep, and I take a walk down memory lane with tears upon my cheeks. Remembering you is easy, I do it every day, but missing you is heartache that never goes away. I hold you tight within my heart, and there you will remain, until the joyous day arrives that we will meet again. Author Unknown" Mamaw I miss you more than words can say. I wish I lived closer so I could of seen you everyday. RIH Mamaw I love you to the moon and back

I was blessed to have met Sis Patton at Bethel Missionary Baptist Church when she was there visiting her daughers family (Sis Clara McCoy). She indeed was a child of the Lord as my spirit bare witness with hers. Her smile and warmth had the love of God all over it. I thank God that He allowed our paths to cross here on earth as I feel truly blessed to have been in church with this part of your family. Please take comfort in knowing that Sis Patton has been rewarded for her work in the Lord and is now resting from her labors. God has wiped all tears from her eyes and replaced them with a smile that could light up Heaven. Her peace and joy is eternal and through faith and by His grace, all Gods children will be able to go home someday where there will be no more separation, no pain, no sorrow and we too will see Jesus face to face. I pray all will make peace with God through His son Jesus so you can call Heaven your home also. God bless and comfort you. Your family is in our prayers.

God saw you getting weaker, so he did what he thought was best. He came and stood beside you and he whispered 'Come to rest.' We could not understand it, no matter how we tried. If love could have saved you, you never would have died.
