Patsy was such a kind-hearted, fun-loving soul who would do anything for anybody in need. When Patsy told a story or a joke, everyone stopped to listen because you knew it was going to be hilarious. If not for the content of the story or punch line of the joke, for her mannerisms and expressions as she spoke. Patsy was truly a wonderful person and friend and will be missed. My thoughts and prayers go out to Bobby, Kedre, Kandes and their respective families.

  It was such a surprise to me when I heard Patsy had passed away. I understand how painful this must be for you. I will remember Patsy for her warmth and kindness to me and everyone she met. She always had a smile, a laugh that was contagious and loving words to say about her family . She was a very special lady.
Please be comforted by the thought that many people hold fond memories of Patsy. She touched many lives, including mind. .
To quote from Kahil Gibran - "When you are sorrowful, look into your heart, and you shall see that in truth you are weeping for that which has been your delight."
My thoughts and prayers are with you.

No Night There

Words by John R. Clements, c.1899
Music by Hart P. Danks (06 Apr 1834 - 20 Nov 1923)


1. In the land of fadeless day
Lies the city foursquare;
It shall never pass away,
And there is no night there.

* Refrain:
God shall wipe away all tears,
There’s no death, no pain, nor fears,
And they count not time by years,
For there is no night there.

2. All the gates of pearl are made,
In the city foursquare;
All the streets with gold are laid,
And there is no night there.

3. All the gates shall never close
To the city foursquare;
There life’s crystal river flows,
And there is no night there.

4. There they need no sunshine bright,
In that city foursquare;
For the Lamb is all the light,
And there is no night there.
