My twin sister Karen and I lived up the street from the Reaves family when they lived In Greeneville. Patsy, and Kathy were at our house everyday or we were down there. We ran into her last year.

Charles please know that Sue and I grieve with you and the girls at the loss of your dear wife, the girls Mom, and thanks be to God our dear friend. It was such a joy to know Pat. We have fond memories of our Sunday morning visits there at church. While they were often brief they were always so touching and heartfelt. We have surely lost a sweet soul whom I so look forward to seeing again bye and bye. We will pray for peace and comfort for you and the girls as you adjust to this terrible loss. We love you all.
Charles, Brenda and Wanda, , “Old Sweetie” here. I was so sad to hear about Pat. When I came to work in food service with her, she made me feel so welcome and part of a family. Charles she gave me 5 trees from your job at the forestry service. Three of the oaks have grown and flourished these many years. I think of her every time I look at them. She was so proud of her family. And loved you all very much. Our prayers and thoughts are with you. Sandy Thomas

For so many years you all have been just like part of our family. It was just expected when we had get together that you all would be there. When daddy got his military medals you all were there to celebrate with us. When mom and dad passed away you all were there to grieve with us. If anyone needed anything if Pat could help she was right there. May you all find peace and comfort in all your good memories and in your friends and family. Pat was a beautiful person inside and out and hope you all know she was loved very much.

Charles and Family,
There are no words to adequately express the friendship that Pat always shared with me and with anyone around her! She was truly a great, loving person--one who will be forever precious in my heart! There is no doubt where she is today! I know Pat is in the presence of our Heavenly Father and all the family and friends who welcomed her with open arms! Please know, you and your family will be in our prayers! So blessed that God allowed us to meet and enjoy the blessing of friendship for so many years.
So sorry for your loss. Prayers for everyone.

I am lucky to have had such a wonderful person in my life. She was always there for me no matter what. She promised my mother she would always be there for me and she kept that promise. It is hard to imagine my life without hearing her voice daily. My heart is breaking, but I know she is with my mother today and that makes my heart full and glad. I love you aunt Pat!
