Pat & Family,
Our hearts & prayers go out to you.
I'm sad to hear about Shirl's passing . I loved getting to know her at FUMC Kerrville. She was such a sweet, kindhearted, classy lady. She often helped me in the church office & helped count offerings. She & Pat often visited a mutual friend of mine who lived to be 100 in a nursing home. Harriet loved going for a spin in the Patterson's convertible and they often treated her to lunch.
Shirl, rest in peace in God's loving arms!
