MessageJim and I express our deepest sympathy to Patsy's family. I remember Patsy vividly from early days when I was a child and her parents owning the store in G.B. She always had a friendly pretty smile. We saw her and Arnold in Salome after many, many years and she was the same pretty lady I remembered. R.I.P.
