I was born having you as a "big sister (even though you were a first cousin)".  I grew up loving you and learning how to become a young lady. You taught me how to cook and gave me good fashion sense.  I will forever miss you, but I'm so glad I will see you again in Heaven. Thank you for your life. Thank you, Jim, for taking care of my dearest cousin.  Jesus will take over where you left off.  
Love, Karen Gick

Dear Jim and Family,
So very sorry for your loss.
Patty was such a sweet soul and I will always remember our chats at Dallas Lamb and Carol's. May God wrap you in his arms during this very sad time.

Jim and family.....we were saddened to learn of your dear wife's death.  She was a real fighter who seemed very aware of what was going on around her at all times.  I'll always remember seeing her in downtown Payne, arriving to or departing from the beauty salon where you so patiently and gently chauffeured her Jim. I bet you'll not forget those times either.  You and your family have our sympathy, Jim and Vicki Hooker, Mesa, AZ.

Patty, My sister not by blood but with our hearts, we have been together as  a family for so long I remember when I split my chin thanks to you for zipping my hands in my pockets because my hands were cold had no gloves ,I fell but could not stop my fall HAD NO HANDS..Went to the hospital had to have stitches still have the scar....What a way to remember you..What wonderful times we had as kids... Wish we could turn back the hands of time... When you were at our house ALL the time as your Mother had to work and my Mom was home for all of us GIRLS my poor DAD drove us all six girls with my Mom, that is why we had a station wagon.........
