Carroll, my heart goes out to you. Pattie was a delightful lady, always with a smile, which is the way I’ll always picture her. She & Pauline Johnson hosted a baby shower for me before Dennis was born way back in 1956; and Pattie used to bring Myrna to our apartment over the old Roanoke-Chowan Bank to visit. I have pictures of our two little ones playing on the floor. Many good memories of you & Pattie attending our RKHS reunions through the years… Happy times–and more to come when we meet your Pattie and my Phil in heaven! God bless, Edie Farris
