    Aunt Pat was truly one special lady!!!! She will definitely be missed! I cannot think of one time that I didn't see her smiling. She was one of the kindest, sweetest, and generous women I have ever known. She was a mother to all of us and the Matriarch of the Kersey family. RIP auntie. Thomas, Eunice, Constance (and family)....please know that we are thinking of you all during this time!!! You will continue to be in our thoughts and prayers. We love you! Pamela, Derrick, & ShaDerrica Harris

    To the family I send my condolences. Nothing can prepare us for the loss of a loved one. May you find comfort in family and close friends, your wonderful memories, and God, who is the source of all comfort. (2 Corinthians 1:3,4)

    To the Jersey Family: I wanted to send my deepest condolences to your family. May the memories of Mrs. Jersey help you during this difficult time. Please reflect on the resurrection hope mentioned at Acts 24:15 and John 5:28 and 29. Reflecting on the resurrection hope can help ease your pain of sorrow. We can see Mrs. Jersey again, right here on this earth but under different conditions. Please read about these different conditions at Psalms 37: 9,10,11 & 29. I will keep your family in my thoughts and prayers. Love,
