Condolences to the family of Patricia Coker Henderson

  • I am so sorry to hear about Patsy. We finished high school together in 1953. Then James and my husband Furman were cousins so we stayed in touch.

    It was so good to see her at our last high school reunion luncheon earlier this year. Scott and Holly you are in my thoughts and prayers. Hopefully I will be able to attend her service on Wednesday.

    Words cannot express! Pat was dear sweet aunt and sister in law.
    She had a love for her community and her heritage. She was most patriotic! She loved her Church and friends and neighbors. We will miss her! Our love continues and remains forever.
