I do so hate to hear the news about the decline in Pat's health. She has had such a hard time of it for so long. I will most certainly be praying for her & Phil.

I just talked with Phil McHaffie this morning. He wanted me to let the class know that Patricia is incoherent and in her final days. Hospice has discontinued fluids and has increased her pain medication. Please keep Phil and Patricia in your thoughts and prayers.

I'm sad about Patricia in many ways.  She would often text or send me a personal message to keep me informed about things or people in Shelbyville. She had such a sweet and kind heart. I know she will be missed. I imagine Phil will be lost without her. My prayers go out to him.

I was also sad to hear of Patricia's passing. We were classmates all the way through elementary school at Southside. After high school I never saw her again—but she came to my father's visitation in 2014. We talked and reminisced for some time, and she was still the sweet spirit and kind soul I remembered. Rest in peace, and we are losing too many of us...

Patricia was part of the "Southside Group" so I went to school with her from the first thru 12th. I hadn't seen her since our last reunion, but remember her to be such a kind and nice person. RIP Patricia. Prayers for Phil

Below are some oldies from the summer of 1970, as we were preparing for our senior year at SCHS.

Take a few minutes and reminisce back 51 years.

The funeral for Henry Evans was indeed a beautiful service. If you have occasion to hear Sanda Avent speak, I would encourage you to do so. She brought out all the love that everyone there felt for Henry. Her faith and her compassion cannot possibly be measured! Just as it was with Henry, if you have Sandra as a friend, you are truly blessed!

Sandra Avent

Thank you to both DebbieG. and Debbie M. for attending Henry's Celebration of life. The der I get the more I appreciate those who were and are a part of precious memories. Those HS and Middle School forever link us. Great seeing you both.
