      It saddens me that she has left us but her legacy will forever live on. She was an inspiration to me as a publicist and a Christian, almost a God send.

      Patty, “In comparison with this big world, the human heart is only a small thing. Though the world is so large, it is utterly unable to satisfy this tiny heart. Our ever growing soul and it capacities can be satisfied only in the infinite GOD. As water is restless until it reaches it level, so the soul has no peace until it rest in GOD.” Mommy
