    ROSWELL, Ga., June 25 /PRNewswire/ -- "This weekend, Patsy lost a
 13-year battle with ovarian cancer. As was true with every other crisis she
 endured during her life, she exhibited great courage and determination,
 never questioning her faith in God or losing one minute in demonstrating
 her love for her family and friends. Hopefully, Patsy's energy and
 enthusiasm for life will serve as an example for others who face difficult
 personal circumstances and challenges. Words cannot describe how much I
 will miss her," said John Ramsey.
     Patsy died at approximately 3:30 a.m. on Saturday, June 24, with her
 husband John by her side at the time of her death. She was 49 years old.
 Patsy's funeral will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Thursday, June 29 at Roswell
