Eris and I became friends during the time she was able to attend church services at First Baptist Church in Hillsborough. In our conversations I learned that she walked several days a week around her neighborhood. I ask her if she would mind if I joined her. So we began our journey together for three years. She let me know right away that she spoke her mind and that I might get my feelings hurt. I laughed and said there was no way that would happen...and it didn't. We had wonderful times together. We grew to be good friends. I know she will be missed!

Patricia, Your mom was a mentor to me as I began my walk of faith at Leaksville Christian. Always beautiful and full to the brim with joy. My mom and dad (Dot and Weldon Reynolds) loved her so very much. My very best to you, Bonnie Reynolds Fulk

Patricia so sorry to hear about the loss of your mother. I remember her from going to church with you and also from going to school with you. You and your family will be in my thoughts and prayers. Take care.🙏🌹
