  1. CandleImagePatsy’s smile here is a wonderful glimpse into who she is to so many of us. We met her and Harry first at First Presbyterian Boulder and then they moved to Pueblo and we served together at Westminster. What a delightful couple they were and what a dear friend she continued to be after we said “Til We Meet Again” to Harry. Lori, to you and your family we extend our deep sympathy and assurance that Jesus promised to comfort those who grieve. On the assuring authority of the Scriptures your folks loved, she has passed into the very presence of the Lord. Together she and your dad will be receiving new fully functioning wonderful resurrection bodies. With all Christians they will participate in our Creator-Father’s plan for a new heaven and new earth! I hope you are continuing Patsy’s amazing Christmas Doll Tree. Blessings, Pastor Gwen and Darrel and Brown

  3. CandleImageIt was a pleasure knowing you Patsy and to have you as extended family for so many years. Seems as though 2020 has gone to hell in a hand basket since you left, your presence is greatly missed. May you rest in God’s Eternal Peace.
