The family of Patsy Hudman wish to extend our sincere thanks to the excellent staff at Wisteria Place for their loving care.

In lieu of flowers the family is offering two suggestions for donations:

1. The charity of your choice.

2.  “Patsy’s Bird Bath” – Patsy loved to watch the birds at the bird feeder we put just outside her window. And when she and Hud first moved to the Wisteria Place he developed a following of what seemed like hundreds of birds with his 5:00 whistle and bird-seed happy hour. We would like to continue the bird-watching entertainment with a bird bath placed in the Wisteria courtyard next to the common area where Patsy and her friends gather for meals and bingo.  Donations can be made to April Haas:
