I am thankful for this woman who was there for me in my youth, who taught me how to love, to sing for sure, and to dance the dance of life. I am sorry I won’t get to sing the songs you wanted me to sing at your celebration of life.
      Go rest high Shirley Jean, Aunt Pat, your time on earth is through. You have run the race, and though many hurdles came up in your life, you finished the race.
      I pray that in times such as this we who are still running our own races are able to put aside differences and griefs, and share the love that we all have shared along the way with this wonderful woman. We have all been blessed by her in some way or another.

    • My condolences to the family. Blessed be the memory of “Pat”. Fly high with the angels and rip.
