My childhood was amazing because Mrs White was a part of it. The fun things I did at their house. Swimming,sleeping on the porch etc and popcorn always was popcorn. Know matter where I was in life if I saw her I would get a smile and a kiss and oh darling how you doing. She was a wonderful woman not many like her. Xoxo

Our lives were only better with Mom White being a part of it, I will miss her dearly. She brought joy and love to everyone she met. She was truly a precious soul.

So very sorry to hear of Cousin Pat's passing. Cousin Pat would write, and call ever so often, and always remember holidays! She would send a bag or two of tea, which was always welcome! She would always remember our girls too! Our prayers, and good wishes are with all of you. Pat was a loving and kind person, and we will always remember her .
