Patricia and I became close friends when we met at Mount Calvary Baptist Church when we were both about 10 years old. We spent a lot of time together in her home and mine. At the time, their home was a short distance from Mount Calvary on Poinsettia; I lived around the corner on Burnet Street. I enjoyed the many visits and overnight stays in the Betts home. I was raised in a single-parent home, and have always felt the void of not having grown up with my father in the home … I still do. I especially cherish Mr. Betts for always making me feel at home and a part of the family; and Pat for sharing her Dad with me. Their tender-loving care, kindness and generosity filled the void I felt whenever I was in their presence. After our first year of high school at Highlands, Pat and I lost touch when I transferred to Brackenridge High School. We reconnected again as adults when we both worked at the University of the Incarnate Word (then Incarnate Word College) in late 1989/early 1990. During that time, I would give Pat a ride to work when she needed it. I enjoyed the time we spent together; it was so good to reconnect. I remember that her son played football for Sam Houston High School (I believe that’s the school he attended). I went to a few of the games at Alamo Stadium, and got such great pleasure out of hearing and watching Pat cheer her son on! She’d get so excited!! She was so proud of her children!!! Thank you, God, for Pat, her family, and all the memories I have reminisced about over the years. Pat, I shall never forget you; and I shall forever cherish the memories. I wish you sweet, sweet rest in Jesus, our Lord and Savior!!! Love, Beverly (White) Ellison
