    Missy, Em, Cieara, and Morgan:

    Grandma Patty was a woman like no other; so strong, loving, and full of sass! She was a force to be reckoned with and definitely one to emulate. Grandma Patty’s presence was a gift to all who knew her, and I can’t thank you all enough for allowing me to share her love ever since we were kids—she was literally the only grandma I’ve ever known and my only solace is knowing she is finally back in Carl’s arms. I love you all, you’re in my heart, thoughts and prayers <3

    My sincerest condolences to the family. I grew up knowing her as Patty Belle – our families went camping when I was a kid. She was always sweet to me and always made me laugh. Deanna Smith Dibble
