    I’m so sorry to hear about Patsy. My sympathy to all of you. When we were kids, she, Betty Pribyl and I hung together when we visited our MN relatives. We had fun and maybe a little trouble from our parents :>)

  2. Heidi (Carlson) Russell

    My prayers go out to all of you to offer you comfort and peace. Every time I saw her she had a smile on her face. Even at time through tears. God bless you all. RIP Patsy.
