Dear Patsy, Darla, Becky and Family, We just want all of you to know how sorry we are about Windy's passing. He was one great fella! Daddy always enjoyed visiting with him and loved to catch up with him in the field or at the elevator. Mother and I were talking this morning about when we lived next door to each other was a good time with great neighbors. May God wrap His arms of peace and love around all of you at this time. We know you will miss him greatly. May the memories fill your hearts and ease the pain. Love and Prayers, Ruby Smith, Howard and Genelle Patton
