  1. Dear Jim,
    I am so sorry to hear of your sweet Mama’s passing. You and your Mother have always held a special place in my heart.

    My thoughts and prayers are with you and all of your family.


  2. Patterson Girls, I am so sorry about your mother’s passing. I Saw the small notice in the paper but did not see any additional information and thereby missed the services. Margie will certainly be remembered and missed by all who knew her. My memories go way, way back to Fleming. She was a kind and gentle lady. My sincere condolences . Gwen Hopkins
