  1. I worked with Patricia and she was truly one of the funniest most down to earth nurses I know. She could always make me laugh even when the bottom was falling out of our world. My sincerest condolences to her family whom she loved so much. If there is any way I can be of assistance do not hesitate to let me know. I see that she had a dog, Hope. If finding someone to take the dog is a problem please consider me. I know how hard it is to place an animal after the owner passes on.

  2. Sending thoughts and prayer to family and dear friend Jan Roberts at this time of grief. May God be with you. Patricia left a huge footprint on my heart. Her determination to suceed, her dry wit and her love of her sons are the things I will remember her for. Setting up a fund at Amarillo College for single mothers going to nursing school is a great testament to her life. If there is any way I can help that happen I will.

  3. To Patricia A Guffeys’ family: I did not know Ms. Guffey but I do want to offer my condolences to the family as I have also lost a family member due to an illness. By reading Patricia’s obituary she was a woman of faith, therefore, how encouraging to know that she believed in Jesus Christ and was familiar with his activities while here on Earth. In Matthew 9:35 we read that “Jesus set out on a tour of all the cities and villages, teaching . . . and preaching the good news of the kingdom and curing every sort of disease and every sort of infirmity.” By associating such healing with his preaching about the Kingdom, Jesus provided a marvelous foreview of what he will do for mankind during his Millennial Reign. And because Jesus died for mankind giving us hope of everlasting life we can be assured we will welcome Patricia A Guffey into the new world for John 5:28, 29 states: “Do not marvel at this, because the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life, those who practiced vile things to a resurrection of judgment.”
    John 11:25, 26: “Jesus said to her: ‘I am the resurrection and the life. He that exercises faith in me, even though he dies, will come to life; and everyone that is living and exercises faith in me will never die at all. Do you believe this?’”. May Jehovah God comfort the family during in your grieving process.

  4. Hope is the thing with feathers that perches in the soul, And sings the tune without the words, and never stops at all.
