The Nashville Experience... Meeting Patsypals Chantel, her mom, Vanessa and Craig was wonderful. This trip was not one that anyone could or should have done alone. It was much too emotionally charged. I think that we all went from one extreme to another, from laughing to crying, and the best part of this whole tragedy, is that some good friendships were forged, and strengthened. We got together Tuesday morning, and were so excited at the prospect of seeing these precious items, and meeting Julie. After lunch, and goofing off at Tootsies, we headed over to the HOF, where we met with Jimmy Walker, and spent about an hour or so getting to know Julie. She is really very sweet, and she talked with us like we’d known her forever. It was just nice to meet her, and get to know her a bit. We really did appreciate her want and willingness to come out in nasty weather, just to hang with us crazy fans, so Julie, thanks, honey!! Your graciousness to fans during such a rough time for you will never be forgotten, and it helped to ease the pain of this whole thing.

Then, it was time to part with Julie, her husband, and Jimmy, and go to the Hilton, to see the clothes. When we knocked on that door, I think we all stopped breathing at the same time. The hostess whipped that door open, and we all just stopped in our tracks. The sight of HER things staring right at us was overwhelming. Hell, for a second, I couldn’t get my stupid feet to move!! Well, we walked in, and: It was a small, regular sized hotel room, and the bed was replaced with a couch, desk, and coffee table. Looking immediately to the right, hanging on hangers off the picture frame was Patsy’s peach and black maternity dress with dice on each side of the bodice. The black dice were outlined in rhinestones. Beside that was an off-white cotton dress with black, tan, peach and brown print. Looking to the left, was a pair of black Capri pants, hanging on a hanger, off the thermostat button... More to the left, IN THE BATHROOM, was her beautiful mink coat. It was tan and brown, and in beautiful condition. It has a wide round collar, with big (50 cent piece size) brown buttons. You could see around the inside of the collar, where it was worn from rubbing against her neck and face. My God, that broke my heart. Yeah, I buried my face in it, I admit... On the shower curtain pole were 2 western blouses. One yellow and white small plaid, and the other was a Wrangler brand, and was white with brown plaid.

Back into the hotel room now... Directly to the left, hanging off of the entertainment center, was the classic green lace over white dress. Again, in pristine condition... The belt buckle was silver and square, and the dress had some rhinestones here and there. The bottom was scalloped, and I had to resist the urge to flip the collar up, like she wore it on so many videos... Immediately beside this was a sleeveless cotton peach colored dress that had a pleated skirt, and a bow at the bosom.

Moving from the entertainment center, on a mannequin, hung her beloved fringed buckskin jacket. It was well loved, and well worn. It was stained, spotted, and smelled strongly of cigarette smoke. It was pure Patsy, period. Next to that, on a mannequin, hung the black sequined dress that she wore on her album cover. Next came the off-white, short sleeved sequined skirt and shirt from Carnegie Hall. Looking now to the center of the room, beside the white dress, was the sky-blue culotte cowgirl outfit, in beautiful condition. This was simply lying on a chair, with the vest on a hanger draped over the back of the chair. The fringes each had a little rhinestone at the end. Sitting on the chair, with this outfit, was a heavily worn pair of white cowgirl boots, with gold trim on the tops. These, too, were well loved, and well worn. They were polished over and over, you could tell, with that old fashioned white shoe polish liquid. I could just picture her sittin’ there polishing those boots, and my heart shattered. I held those boots for the longest time, amazed that I was holding PATSY’S BOOTS, and hurting completely...

To the left of the chair that held these treasures, was the beautiful, black sequined Vegas gown. I think that for all of us, it was the most moving and captivating thing of all. She was quite svelte when she wore that, I estimate it being about a size 8-10, max. The gown, like everything else, was in wonderful condition, a testament to Mom Hensley’s care taking of her baby’s things... On the table to the right of the gown, were the black sequined purse, and the gloves. The gloves are sheer black with piping running from finger tip to top. They were a size 7. On the ring and middle finger of the right glove, there was pinkish red lipstick. That leveled me to the couch, where I held those gloves for the longest time. Now behind the chair, and the gowns, along the window, hanging on the curtain rod, from left to right was a gorgeous black 3 quarter length sleeve dress that had a leopard print sash around the middle. That one would be perfectly in style today.

Beside it hung THE black and gold Carnegie Hall dress. The belt buckle was round, and gold, and the bottom lace was straight, instead of scalloped like the green dress. It , too, was in mint condition. It is gorgeous, and the gold underneath the black lace just shimmered in the light. The buttons were black with gold in the centers. To the right of the Carnegie Hall dress was a fabulous lilac cowgirl outfit, made by dear Mom Hensley. The material was rather thick and shiny, and it was a vest and pants. The pants had rhinestones running from hip to ankle on each side, and the vest had musical notes in silver rhinestones on it. If you looked inside the vest, you could see where Mom Hensley had marked where to put the rhinestones in. This marvel was topped off with a matching lilac scarf with rhinetones. The vest was stained a bit, keep in mind that these things were deodorized, but not cleaned, so any stains that were there were still there... To the right of that, was a gold and black brocade sleeveless dress. Flowers and vines were embossed on it, and it was fabulous. Then hung a salmon pink chiffon sleeveless dress, that had the bodice that sort of “criss-crossed”. The skirt was full and flowing. Last, but not least, on the far right of that, was the final item For some reason, this one really got to me, although I’ve never seen a picture of our darlin’ in it. It was a gorgeous emerald green 3 quarter length sleeve dress with a tight bodice and full skirt. It had a fabulous belt that at the center, its widest width was about 4-5 inches, and the eyes for lacing were outlined in rhinestones; there were 4 pairs of eyes, and emerald fabric was laced through to tie the belt. This dress had some stains on it, and I just don’t know why, but I loved picturing her in that more than the others. Perhaps the color, and how great she’d have looked in it, I don’t know...

Well, there’s the detailed description, to the best of my memory. Chantel, Vanessa, correct me if I’ve made any errors... Now, we spent 2 hours in that room, just pouring over these things.. We laughed, cried, got angry, and probably felt every emotion rush through at the speed of light. It was a tumultuous, exciting, bittersweet experience. I’m glad that I could share it with good friends, and wish that more of us from Patsyland could have been there.

Yes, I loved how intimate this was, and that somehow, I imagine Patsy liking her fans burying their faces in her coat and boots, but dammit, I would give that up to see her treated with the respect she deserves. These things had NO business hanging in some damned hotel room on hangers. The Queen of Country deserves better, and for NO ONE from the HOF to have shown up by the time we were there (end of day 2 of 2 ½), is appalling. I have to give serious thought to what they are all about... Someone couldn’t walk 600 feet across the street, and I drove 600 miles to see this stuff. For me, it was to pay respects to my Patsy, and I’d have driven 1,000 miles, but that’s not the point. The point is that there seems to be horrific apathy in Nashville, and this is a moment for them to hang their collective heads in shame.

Who is to blame for this travesty??? I don’t really know, but I do think that there is plenty of blame to go around. My heart breaks for family members of Patsy’s like Julie who are helpless to intervene in the greedy dispute of others that has lead to this, and I do blame those greedy ones who have come to show this is how they display their gratitude for this girl working and slaving to help support them when it was needed. You know who you are, and so does Patsy. You know this is not what Patsy or Mom Hensley would have wanted, and I think that 2 angels are weeping right now. Nashville is to blame for its apathy, and appalling lack of caring. The HOF is to blame for the same, and then some. This is how they regard the Queen of Country Music, the first female inductee into their very own Hall, the number one female artist, 40 years after her death?? No, maybe things can’t be bought by them, but some respect would have been nice, and last time I looked, that doesn’t cost anything. If someone eventually showed up from the HOF on that last half-day of viewing on Wednesday, then I stand corrected, and will be the first to apologize. But, since space was so limited to view these things, why, then, was the vast lobby of the HOF not used? What better place to view and for most of us, to mourn these items??

Patsy, we love you, please know that. We won’t stop fighting for you, even in the face of total greed and apathy. This ain’t over, and even if we do lose this battle, we will not lose the war for you, I promise you that much.

It's a sad day in "Patsyland", folks, when a great web site like Lisa, the Homesick Texan's "Patsified!" goes dark. For details, you can check out (Patsified!). I fully understand Lisa's heartbreak over the impending auction and her utter frustration. They say that "time heals all wounds", and that "this too, will pass", and I hope that holds true in this case also. It would be a travesty and tragedy if we lose "Patsified!" over this auction mess. Personally, I don't know if any good can come of all this, but I certainly hope so.

I spent about 30 minutes in the small room viewing the clothes up for auction. They had pieces in the bathroom. Got to touch the Carnegie dress. It was a really interesting experience, hard for me to put into words. A fringe jacket Patsy wore on Godfrey was estimated at $12,000.00. The black Vegas dress is estimated at $30,000.00!!! Obviously, this is out of most of the fans' ball park! I am really surprised at the presale estimates. Most of the dresses were $5,000.00 with no documentation.

She did not have the letters with her. She did have a synopsis of the letters. These were sent to Marie Flynt from 1952-1963. They are thinking they will sell them as pieces or small lots. But not 100% sure.

Julie and Richard visited with us for about 1 hour in the lobby of the Hall of Fame. We walked the other fans over to the hotel. After they went up, Julie and I looked through my photos. She told me a lot of interesting things, which I needed a recorder for. She told me colors, locations of many photos. We discussed jewelry. It was really cool discussing this with her personally! Always, Jimmy

Patsy Cline sang like no one has sung before, like no one may ever sing again. She was extraordinary - uncanny. When I listen to Patsy, she always finds me. She can still turn this heart around with just the sound of her voice. She wraps her tender arms around me and gently leads me down the shadowy path of "Lonely Street". Together, we confront the demons of hurt, and I begin to heal. Yesterday, we peered through the soot covered glass of God's locomotive, and she engineered us about the curves and tunnels of 'life's railway'. Side by side, we drove that train right down the tracks of destiny. No fear!

Whenever life hands me an unexpected twist, I am somehow strengthened by Patsy's music. She translates emotion into musical note. Comfort and solace, laughter and strength have poured into my soul and healed me on oh so many occasions.

Now, the doors of Patsy's home will be open to us. A museum! Hurrah! At last, we shall have a tangible connection to 'The Cline'. We shall open that door to her home and walk into her past - the past that helped to shape her - the past that we have been longing to share with her for so long.

I submit the following composition in celebration. Click here!

Hi all. Publically, Julie thanks for your post. Theresa, I thought those sequins were put on by Mrs. H and that she did that dress also. I guess we read the same book. Ha ha ha. This whole auction has been a like to keep up with. Let's hope all works out for the best in the end. Jimmy W

Does any color video exist of Patsy's TV/Concert performances? She has such a striking appearance (she's georgeous!)... if for no other performer, it's too bad color wasn't more available in her day. Love your website!

I'd like to comment... I've been reading this forum for some time now and would like to point out what a beautiful person Patsy Cline's daughter is. She is full of God's grace and has a lot to be proud of. You have eloquently stated your feelings (in regards to personal, family matters) and gone on to sharing your mother to the fullest of your ability. My mother passed away a few years back, and there are times I don't like sharing memories with my own sisters. It is also wonderful to read about your faith and trust in God, and how you are free to let that show. Thank you. God Bless.

Dear Friends, I want to share a note with you that I shared with another friend that was concerned about my feelings. I hope you all understand that I am only wanting to make sure that you are given the truth, and that you are not taken advantage of. I hope everyone understands that I am not wanting to discourage anyone from participating in the auction. As I told my friend, better that someone have the things that cares about them. Thanks, Julie

Don't worry, I wasn't upset. It has been stated that way before, and that is why I spend time trying to straighten things out. I don't mean to come off as mean or griping. I understand that things get told that aren't always correct. It isn't you, there are many things that come up and have to be clarified. I hope Dad will write down a lot of things before his day comes. He said just the other day, if he doesn't there is no telling who will know the truth. I have even met people and been introduced, and had them tell me they saw "Patsy's daughter" and I wasn't the one they saw. It must have been "her other daughter"! (I tried to explain to her that I was the only one, and all she could say was that I wasn't the one she had seen.....). I have had people on the internet tell me that my Dad must not remember what her signature looks like because I had told them that an autograph they were selling wasn't her signature. It was then that I explained who I was, and that maybe he would believe me if he compared it to the baby book I had that she had kept for me! There is always gonna be some misinformation, but I just want to try to keep things as close to the truth as I can. I am always learning and asking questions, too. Hey, there are some fans that know more than I do, for sure! Thanks for the concern, but don't let it bother you. And I hope no one will feel bad about bidding. I want them to feel free to participate. It would be better that someone have the things that would care! Thanks again! Julie

I OWE AN APOLOGY TO JULIE AND ALL FOR MY INACCURATE STATEMENT!!!! In my post, just before Julie's poignant post, I blithered on about how Mom Hensley "sewed sequins on the Veags gown till her fingers bled". Julie, in her post, has clarified that the Vegas gown was in fact, not made by Mom Hensley. I had thought that she had made that from something I'd read, and want to apologize to all for misstating that. I meant no harm, and had no intention of misleading anyone, I should have done my homework better before letting my emotions run away on that post, trying to get us to see if we can rattle the chains of rich folks who could get this stuff and keep it close by. So, to make it short and sweet: My most sincere apologies to Julie, her family and to all of you for that misstep. We all love Patsy here, and the LAST thing on earth I want to do is to hurt anyone, especially Julie and her family. My heart goes out to Julie during this difficult time. Please accept my aplogy for any problems this may have caused.

Hi everybody, Julie here... I just wanted to drop in and say a little something about the auction. First of all, let me say that neither Dad, nor my brother Randy, nor myself, have anything to do with the auction. I am sure everyone is, in one way, sadden by this, and yet I understand that this is a unique opportunity for some. It is sad that my aunt & uncle can't settle this matter without having to sell some of these things. According to the news accounts, they are having to sell some things to pay for legal fees, and hopefully they will be able to divide the remainder. My personal feelings are mixed.

I had prepared myself for the day when my Grandmother would not be here, and wasn't sure what would happen to my mother's things. I don't really think I gave it much thought. After my Grandmother died, I still never put much thought into it. When the will said that my aunt & uncle would split everything, I was content with the fact that all that 'stuff' was just material things. With my Grandmother not here anymore, I knew things would never be the same. She was the nucleus of that side of my family. I was really hit hard, though, when I read in the newspapers that they were thinking of selling some of the items that had belonged to my Mom, in order to settle the estate. It really was sad. Sad that they can't get this settled. Sad that it has come to this. Sad that my Grandmother would be so upset, and disappointed. Sad that a piece of my life is over.

Also, I was angry... Grannie would have hated this. It is all so childish. I was angry because my Mom had been the one to put her life out there, and then my Grandmother had to give her up, and now it has all just become a tug-of-war. My Grandmother did make a lot of the things that my Mom wore, and my Mom would draw pictures of the dresses she wanted her to make, and she would cut designs out of cardboard (like a disc to look like a record, etc.), and send her measurements to my Grandmother, and Grannie would make them. (Note: The black sequin dress that Mom wore at The Mint is a store bought dress. The dress that has been described as the one that Grannie put sequins on 'until her fingers bled' is the red western suit with the steer-heads on it. The fringe was made with leather that had been cut with pinking shears. There are about 3000 sequins on that suit, and Grannie had to place each sequin in a prong set, and bend the prongs down around the sequins, to hold them in.)

It means more to me that Grannie made these dresses than anything else. I still have a lot of clothes and things that Grannie made for me and my girls. They are very special to me, and I will one day pass them along to my family. I know that Grannie had always hoped to have a museum where these things could be displayed. That is finally about to be a reality, and who knows where the things will be. She had kept these things for years. She showed me some of them over the years. She gave me a few things. She got the red western dress out once when my girls were there, and we took a picture of each one of them with the dress. In the background, on her wall, was a small photograph of Mom in the same dress. I treasure those photos. I am so glad that my girls had the chance to see it. To see the things that Grannie had made, for their Grandmother when she was a young girl. I hope that there will be a chance that some of Mom's things will, somehow, end up "back at home", in the museum that is planned for the old house that Grannie lived in. (That's probably where most of the clothes were made.) Most importantly, I would like to see the few awards that Grannie had in her home, placed in a museum. I know that some people would think that my only concern is that I don't have the things, but that is far from the truth. I never once thought about having the things myself. It never crossed my mind. My biggest concern is that the things that symbolize what my Grandmother and her daughter, my Mom, worked so hard to do, are now being "sold to the highest bidder" because of a stupid disagreement.

I try not to let myself get worked up over it. I thought about going to the showing here in Nashville, just to see the things. I have never seen some of them, and have only seen some of them once about 40 years ago. My kids have never seen them and hardly understand anything about this. I am sorry to ramble on, and didn't mean to get this involved in an email... I just want to try to let everyone know how I felt about it, since I had been asked about it. I do not feel badly towards anyone that has the opportunity to bid, and maybe win any of the items. I do feel that it will be hard for the average person, myself included, to bid against some serious collectors. I wish you all good luck if you should get to participate.

I do want to be helpful to you in anyway, as always. That is another reason why I wanted to address the auction. I want you to know everything you can about things that you might want to bid on. I noticed on the website for the auction house, "Profiles In History", there is a list of things that will be in the auction. They mentioned a pair of black capri pants that Mom had worn on the cover of an album. She wasn't wearing black pants, they were red. That means that the black pants they had listed were not on an album cover. This is the kind of misleading information that I don't like to see out there, no matter how trivial it may seem to some people. If they are going to do something, it should be done right. I will always try not to let anyone mislead you. If I can't answer a concern, I will try my best to find the answer.

Thank you all for all the support you always give, and for remembering Mom. She would never get over it! Thanks to all of you "web-masters" that have kept us connected. You are a very special group of people! Always, Julie

Hi Per, this site is great and all of you folks are wonderful dear people. We are all united in bond because of our undying love for Patsy Cline. Most of us never got to meet her. I think she would like us all if she were here. My love and prayers go out to all her family, cause I include them and all Patsy fans in my own prayers every nite. I just know that when we all cross over ourselves she will be there to meet us. To all of you who read this, God bless each of you and your families... Most sincerely, Greg Mullins

Hey everyone!! There is a major issue of concern that you all need to be aware of. Please go to for the full story, but the gist is that in December, a number of PRECIOUS items of Patsy's will be auctioned off to deal with issues regarding the estate of Patsy's beloved mother, Hilda. Now, these aren't just a few cowgirl outfits we're talking about. The items include a dress worn at Carnegie Hall, and two outfits from Patsy's Las Vegas performances, INCLUDING the beautiful sequinned black gown, gloves, and purse. Hilda sewed sequins on that gown till her fingers bled, and by God, it's sickening to think that this will be sold off, never to be seen again, all due to disputes and greed. Patsy would be heartbroken if she were here to see this. This is an OUTRAGE that items with such tremendous historical and sentimental value will be put on the block to be potentially whisked away to someone's basement, or private collection, never to be seen by fans who adore Patsy so very much.

What a sad, heartbreaking time for Patsy and her fans. I don't claim to understand the dynamics of why this is happening, but it is so disconcerting. I feel for family members who may be caught up in this and helpless to rescue these precious items. My thoughts are for people to contact all and any entities out there who may have the interest and resources to purchase these items and donate them back to either the Hall of Fame or any museum.

Let it be known that these proceeds from this auction WILL NOT benefit a museum of any kind for Patsy. This is solely for the estate, as is made clear in the story at Profiles in History. Please, if any of you can think of ways to help bring Patsy's history home, and out of the hands of some rich private collector that will likely keep these treasures hidden, get on it. We can't let Patsy be robbed like this, we just can't. For Patsy's sake, and for the sake of what she and Hilda would have wanted, please think of, and do anything that you can, even if it seems small and insignificant.

Per, if you want to put this info on the news page, it might be interesting for people to know, and perhaps someone out there can contact someone with the resources to purchase this stuff, and donate it back. This is a tragedy waiting to happen!

There is a Norwegian country singer named Anne Kristin Sagmo, who released her second CD in August, and that CD contains a song about Patsy that Anne Kristin has written herself, called "I remember Patsy Cline". You can listen to the complete song, and three more, at her homepage. Just click on the "Audio" link in the menu to the right.

Does anyone have information on the recording sessions of "Crazy" and "Walking After Midnight"? I am looking for what type of Mic. was used, tape machine, etc. Any information will be appreciated. She was a great lady and I had the pleasure of meeting her in Fl shortly before her death, even conned her into singing me a song for my birthday. She was very pleasant to talk to. I was in a band that had been chosen to back Nashville talent in club in Panama City, Fl. Thanks for any help

I love hearing Patsy Cline sing, and knowing and having to believe that she is dead is hard, because people have brought her back so much today it seems as if she is still with us! I have the talent to be a country star and my goal is to be just like Patsy was, and I will always remember the 1st lady of Country Music, Ms.Patsy Cline!!!

I am a bartender in a small town and Patsy Cline is a real favorite of my customers of all ages. She had a never-ending quality in her voice and style. I am suprised by the different people who comment on how there love her music, mostly because I was not expecting the younger customers to listen to her. I often end a busy night playing a little Patsy to keep me company as I close up the place. I just love her!

I looooovvvveeee Patsy! The first song I ever heard was "I love you, honey" and I must have been 11 at that time. I am 23 now. And I'm still a big fan! I have a lot of CDs and only one movie! Patsy Cline material is hard to come by here, or to expensive! I hope I can come to America someday and visit her grave and her hometown. In the mean time I will write Julie a letter, I think it's great that she wants to talk to and hear from her mom's fans! And as Patsy wrote; Sincerely yours, Marina Emmers

Hi, I'm a Patsy Cline fan glad to sign the guestbook. I'm listening to the Patsy Cline Story. My favorites are "I fall to pieces", "Strange", "A poor man's roses", "Crazy", "Sweet dreams" and "San Antonio Rose". I'm also listening to the Rolling Stones "Exile on main street", "Tumbling dice", "Sweet virginia", "Sweet black angel", "Shine a light". This piece of work is excellent quality. I'm listening to Bob Dylan, John Wesley Harding, excellent work- Bob Dylan. I'll close now! Thanks

Does anyone know where I can buy sheet music (piano) for Patsy's "Gotta Lot of Rhythm in my Soul"? Or if there is a karaoke version of this song available? I saw "Always, Patsy Cline" for the first time when I was about 15 and started singing some of her songs about six months ago. I'm a freshman at Baylor and LOVE singing Patsy Cline songs.

Regarding Patsy being shown as being in Birmingham, Alabama in the movie "Sweet Dreams" -- this is correct as Patsy played a show in Birmingham on March 2 right before she headed to Kansas City to do what would turn out to be her final performance on March 3. In Birmingham, Patsy appeared at the Boutwell Auditorium. This venue is still there and operating and I hope to get over there and get some pictures soon as I only live about 1 hour from Birmingham. I'm currently researching this performance, so I will try to pass on any information, photos, etc. that I can find. Anyway, just wanted to post this in answer to the question asked on your forum. Thanks!

Per, I have a poem that I wrote for the Patsy Cline Museum, and I sent a copy to Judy Sue in Winchester. She enjoyed the creation and saved it away for some future use. However, I would like to share it with all of Patsy's fans. Unfortunately, the poem has a structure that is important to its artistry. When I attempt to send it to you, the format degrades and I lose artistic impact. If you could, contact me and I will send it to you. Please, allow me to contact you in some forum other than the 'Fan Forum'. I shall respect your privacy and security. I simply know that this composition should be shared with all Patsy Cline fans. Please, give me the opportunity to share it with all. I have written on a few other occassions, extolling the worth of Patsy's talent. Consider my former messages and contact me. I can, once again, enrich Patsy's fans. Sincerely, Norma Phelps

Hi there, I am a 32 year old mother of 3 that lives in Alabama... I am a huge fan of Patsy Cline. I am also wondering maybe if she had kin here in Alabama, cause I have a friend that has relatives with the last name of Cline as well... I watched the movie "Sweet Dreams" today, I try and get the chance to watch that movie whenever it comes on syndicated television... That house that was in the movie, the one where Jessica Lange, who portrayed Patsy in the movie, took Ed Harris, who portrayed Charlie, was that the house that Patsy was living in before that fatal day? If so, where was that house? I also find it remarkable, as well, that Julie Fudge has posted messages in the fan forum, it's most rare that celebrities children post messages anywhere... My heart goes out to Julie for losing a loved one at such a young age as her and her brother Randy did... Was Randy named after her producer as well? The one that was also killed in the crash with her... Also in the movie before they took off in the plane before it crashed, it showed Jessica on the phone inside an airport for charter planes, and it showed or I saw a sign that read Birmingham? If so, where in Birmingham was that? Cause I am an hour from Birmingham... I would like to know what happened to that house that Patsy and Charlie purchased, cause it was a nice house... If Charlie stayed in the house after Patsys death or if he moved from it? It's been a while since I have posted a message here but thought I would, beings how I watched the movie "Sweet Dreams" today... Thanks, and good luck to everyone...

Comment: As far as I can remember, without actually consulting the movie, the house used in the movie is NOT the same house that Patsy lived in. The "real" house is located at 815 Nella Drive in Goodlettsville, TN. You can see a picture of it on this page. Charlie sold the house in 1965 to Wilma Burgess, who eventually sold it to someone else. Regarding Birmingham: I have no recollection of such a place. All I know is that the plane started from Kansas City, and went down for fuel in Dyersburg, TN. And, unfortunately, Randy Hughes decided to take off for Nashville that same evening, despite the uncertain weather conditions... Maybe someone else knows something about Birmingham? /Per

The Birthday Gal... Here’s my birthday toast to our Darlin’ Patsy: hold up your drinks, y’all... 70 years ago today, the Lord sent an angel named Ginny to sing in the Shenandoah Valley... Through the years you struggled through poverty and pain, never losing sight of your dream. Caring for your family, and those around you, you never forgot your roots. With a laugh, voice and heart as big as the mountains that you loved, you brightened the world with your song. You taught us strength and courage, bearing the scars to prove it; which only added to your beauty. Your dark, soulful eyes radiated light, love, and life. You were called back to the Lord's arms so soon, but we will never forget... The lessons of love that you sent. You live on in all of us, and fill our hearts with laughter and tears. I will always love you through the years. Happy Birthday, Darlin’. May you lead Heaven’s choir, and I know that you and Mom Hensley are celebratin’ together, and smilin’ down on us. Wish you were here, but in my heart, that’s just where you are, and I’ll never let you go. I fall to pieces when I hear you, and go crazy when I can't. I'm always hidin' out havin' sweet dreams about the next new picture or song that might turn up. You made me love you, and I'll never have leavin' on my mind!! Let’s have some chocolate cake, and a big, cold Dr. Pepper for our doll, and belt out a growwlllin happy birthday song! Love Ya Patsy, I’ll bet you’d still be a knockout at 70, Honey!! Here's to ya, WE LOVE YA, MISS YA, WILL NEVER FORGET YA!! Always, Theresa

Just wanted to inform Patsy Cline fans that "A Closer Walk With Patsy Cline" will open at The Nightlife Dinner Theatre in Nashville, TN on September 27, 2002. Portraying Patsy will be Lisa Layne ("All I Want For Christmas is You"). Lisa sang this role in Nashville at the Ernest Tubb Troubadour Theatre for several years as well as in the national road show, and in various theaters around the country. Lisa bears an uncanny resemblence to Patsy, but the voice is what does it!! The show will run from Sept. 27 until sometime in November. Visit Lisa Layne on her website at

There is a real sense of family among the fans, and it was wonderful to meet people with legendary stories and history like Mildred Keith, and Annie Armstrong. Although it was my first time there, I've loved Patsy all of my life, and it felt like coming home to me. Just wanted to thank everyone who was so kind, and welcoming, and made my weekend such a memorable one. Patsy's presence is definitely there, and I urge all of you to go there. The Patsylove is true, and there are so many folks there who humbly and quietly work for Patsy, and it is a true joy to see. Also, PLEASE go to Bill Cox's site for information on how to donate money to make the dream of a museum for Patsy a reality. Any amount, no matter how small, will help. Judy Sue Kempf of Celebrating Patsy Cline is a class act all the way, and has worked tirelessly to see this happen. She and Patsy need us, so please take a minute to donate. It was great, and I can't wait to get back there next year!! Patsy4ever, Y'all!!

Be safe and have a good time. Since Patsy was #1 and Shania was #7, they should play 7 Patsy songs for every Shania song. In my dreams, I guess.

I have just read an article written about Jean Shepard, written by singer Robbie Fulks. Now I have great respect for Shepard and enjoy her hosting the Opry. She does a great job. My complaint is with Fulks and his comments regarding Patsy Cline. He states that Shepard has not achieved the iconic status of Cline in part because Shepard had the bad manners not to die young, and she is just "plain folks." He goes on to call Patsy "exotically sensual" in contrast! First of all, let me say that millions of fans do not buy Patsy's music because she died young! Tragedy makes good books but does not keep people listening to an artist. Secondly, Fulks needs to read up on Patsy Cline. I've read every book there is on Pasty and everyone who knew her said the same thing - Patsy was "just plain folks" and was herself everywhere she went. There was no mystery or falseness to her. What makes Patsy "exotically sensual" was her voice and her out of this world delivery of songs. Her voice and genius ability to interpret songs accounts for her iconic status. And if my memory serves me right, Patsy faced most of her audiences during her short career with horrific scars on her face, forcing her to wear thicker than normal makeup and sometimes less than flattering wigs. Yet she still beat out all the competition! The reason Jean Shepeard has not reached the status of Patsy Cline is that she is not in Patsy's league in her ability to do magic behind the microphone. Very few are in that league. Jean Shepard can cerainly be praised without bringing Patsy down, Mr. Fulks.

Hey Y'all, I just can't take it!! I'm too happy, someone slap me, please... Just got an e-mail from our Patsyhero Bob Van in Winnie with an additional tid-bit: There WILL now be a fence put around Shenandoah to protect it from the inevitable children, bikes, dogs, etc., that are bound to come from residential development. If y'all recall, they were gonna put a 50' berm and trees, which would do as much to keep kids away as a wet paper bag could hold apples! We have Bob to thank for standing up in this meeting and telling them so, hence the fence!! I was just getting ready to work over the corporation that owns Shenandoah to get a fence, but it has been done, thanks to Bob, and the Planning Commission, too. This is fantastic. Bob and his gang have a long way to go, and more at stake than only Shenandoah, so let's not forget that, and continue to wish them well as they go forward. BOB, THANK YOU SO MUCH, FROM ALL OF US PATSYFANS!!!!! Later, Y'all

Hey Patsypals: Wonderful news this morning!!! The rezoning proposal near Shenandoah has been tabled!! While complete denial of the residential proposal would have been sweet, this is good, and another step in the right direction to protect and respect Patsy's sacred resting place. A HUGE congrats to Bob Van and his neighborhood group in Winnie that have been working tirelessly for this. Also thanks to all of you who have spoken out about this via letters to the editor or on the forum at the Winnie Star. I believe in my heart that it has made a difference. What a wonderful feeling, to have done something for Patsy, no matter how small in comparison to all the joy that she gives to us... I have attached the article from the Star here for y'all, and I LOVE how the Commissioners site Patsy's resting place as a primary concern for not allowing this foolishness to go on. Oh, y'all, I'm walkin' on air this mornin'!! I'm waiting to hear from Bob on any additional details, which I will provide as I get them. Read on Patsypals, and enjoy. We may not be done yet, but this is good!!


Planners Find No Decision Possible on ‘Conundrum Estates’
By Tim Allen
The Winchester Star

After five votes, the Frederick County Planning Commission still couldn’t come up with a decision on what to do with a potential rezoning that would allow 70 homes off Front Royal Pike. Attempts to approve, deny, and approve with various proffers failed. The commission finally voted Wednesday to table the request after almost 2 and a half hours of discussion. The proposed development lies on about 30 acres owned by Doris F. Casey adjacent to Shenandoah Memorial Park. Access to the property next to the cemetery where Patsy Cline is buried was the main issue for the commissioners, as well as residents who live next to the development.

The residents on Westwood Drive are opposed to the new development having access through their neighborhood, and favor access only via U.S. 522 or Papermill Road. Mark Smith with Greenway Engineering, who represents Casey, said getting access via Papermill Road would be extremely difficult. While several commissioners didn’t want to see access via Westwood Drive, others didn’t want to allow a 70-home development with only one way in and out. Still others didn’t want the development at all because of water, drainage, or traffic concerns.

After the first motion to approve without Westwood Drive access was defeated, motions to approve and to approve with a master plan review of the road situation both ended in 6-6 ties. A motion to deny was also defeated. As a motion to table the request for 60 days was approaching another tie vote, Chairman Charles S. DeHaven Jr. seemed to be reluctant when he cast a deciding vote to table, allowing the commission to continue with business. “Tabling was the only option left that hadn’t already come up twice,” DeHaven said during a break in the meeting. “We had to continue until we came up with a positive recommendation.”

In its bylaws, the Planning Commission must recommend either an approval or denial to the Board of Supervisors. It can also table a request. “My biggest concern is to satisfy the people on Westwood while not holding up the rezoning,” said Commissioner Robert A. Morris. It proved to be an impossible task for now. Smith said he will work with Casey to develop another plan he thinks the commission can accept. The commission already tabled the request at its July 1 meeting. “You don’t have a name for this yet. May I suggest Conundrum Estates,” Commissioner Rick C. Ours said about the proposed development in a moment of levity.

Commissioners DeHaven, Roger L. Thomas, Pat Gochenour, William C. Rosenberry, Gene E. Fisher, Ours, John Light, Morris, Greg L. Unger, Charles E. Triplett, George J. Kriz, and Marie F. Straub attended the meeting in the Frederick County Board Room. Cordell Watt was absent.

Hey Patsypals: Just want to remind y'all that even though the Rezoning in Shenandoah has nixed business development, the fight for those in Winnie continues, and the Rezoning meeting will take place tomorrow (August 21). Let's take a minute to wish the best of luck to our friend in Winnie, Bob Van, who clued us into this, and who continues the fight now. To show him our gratitude for getting Patsyfans involved, let's show him our support, and wish all in Winnie the best of luck!! I'll keep y'all posted on anything that I hear from him after the meeting tomorrow, and we'll go from there. Thanks again to all of you who have taken the time to weigh in on this important issue, for without you, the victory over the business rezoning would not have been possible. GOOD LUCK BOB, AND GIVE 'EM HELL!!!

What a tragedy when she died, so much music left for her to sing, well at least she has left us a great legacy. Thank you for your great site, really appreciated landing here...

Ok, I know this is an OLD topic, but I have been reading previous messages, and can't find the answer. This was brought to mind (again!) by a comment I saw on another website. When the song "Blue" first came out by LeAnn Rimes, it was not only claimed that LeAnn sounded "just like Patsy Cline" (gag me!), but that the song had originally been written for Patsy. After looking everywhere and on discographies, I cannot find that the composer of "Blue" ever wrote another song that Patsy recorded, nor can I find any reference to the song in any literature. Can someone help?

Comment: It is true that Bill Mack wrote "Blue" with Patsy in mind, but she never got a chance to record it... The song was recorded twice on the Starday label during the sixties, once by Bill Mack himself and once by a yodeller named Kenny Roberts. And in 1993 Kathryn Pitt recorded the song on a single in Australia. And then it was a big hit for LeAnn during the summer of 1996. (I think she recorded it in late 1995, actually). /Per
Hey all! Per! I am SO excited! My niece who is 8 years old, came from NY to visit. She came in as I was watching- "The Real Patsy Cline" and the tape of the 98 Fan Club Meeting held in Winchester. She automatically said- "Who is that, Uncle Mike?" OHHH! Was I ever READY to do some EDUCATING, and Patsification! I told her who she was, and she said- Oh, she is beautiful! I was also on this site as I was watching, and we went to the photo gallery. She had to see EVERY picture you had. Her favorite is the last picture known to be take in the white chiffon. Anyway- she said- Hey- Uncle Mike- can you turn that up? (The tape). I said sure-and she sat GLUED to the TV after the site pictures, and made me show her tape of the old shows she was singing on that s/o who knows who they are here, provided me with, over and over, and over.

I got out the CDs, the tapes, she LOVED it. She said- "Uncle Mike - will you take me to meet her? I like her better than Brittany Spears! We can go to see her Patsy SING!" I then had to tell her she had passed. She was CRUSHED! She thought- (as I filled her in on the background of Patsy living here and in Winch. and one of her friends of mine living in town- that we could meet her too. So cute.) I was and am so PROUD I got to introduce her to Patsy. I am giving her my tapes, to take home, and she wants to post on here when she gets home! She did ask what happened to her - before the crash- referring to the wreck, as her appearance so drastically changed at first before she healed up. She said- I don't care If she isn't still alive, I am going to listen to her always!

And with that- ANOTHER Patsy Cline Fan Born, another star struck crush- falling in love with Patsy on first site and ear... She also said that she wants to know why no-one else will sing like her. That she didn't think that other people sang the right way now! I rolled LAUGHING- and said- Well HOSS! That's cuz their ain't ever going to be another like her. She wanted to know about Hoss.. and we then spent the whole day utilizing the site, for her education. She had to listen to her all day, and when she went to sleep- she wanted to listen and be sung to sleep by her on tape- which I thought was so cute! Falling asleep to the sound of an angel's voice, as I do when I am so ill.

She listened to "She's got you", "Crazy", and "True love", and said- "I love her humming there, I bet she sang to her babies ALL the time. But I want to tell them, I am sorry they lost their Mommy.

Per- and everyone who makes this site the best site out there, I can't Thank you enough for what you do. If it was not for this site, she would have gotten just pale imitations or little REAL info. on her. God love your soul for doing this, Per. You are more responsible than I for this new girl falling in love with Patsy head over heals. Without you and this site, and ppl who contribute... I could not have done Patsy justice just by telling her everything I know that is already here.

Footnote. I do not now if this is true or not- but Louise- (Anna) swears that when Patsy was first interred, there was a vandal attempt at the grave site. She is mortified by what they are doing, and she is in a war now ON the war path about it. The last thing I did was show my niece the Patsy Cline Memorial Highway, and Patsy's grave. Thank you all, and Thank YOU Per, so much for allowing me the HONOR of introducing Patsy in the style she should be - and lives in still. And Per- if anyone ever asks me about Patsy or where to get 100% accurate information, or just Patsy period- You know- I send 'em right to your site. (I gotta love you Per, bet Patsy has a place reserved for you, just waiting to take you under her wing as she did all her friends. ) Per, I am wishing you ALL the best of ALL things wonderful in life, I think You are one of the most special people.

Hey Gang: Tune into Lisa's Patsified site for all of the details, and a copy of the e-mail sent to me by our Winchester friend Bob Van, but.... The short of it is, that as you all know, the plan for businesses in the rezoning proposal near Shenandoah Memorial Park have been nixed, but the residential plans have not. Of course, this is good. What is worrisome is, that according to Bob, that people have tried to contact the owners of Shenandoah about the idea of fencing the property to protect it from the potential hazards of nearby homes, and there has been NO response from them. They have not attended any of the rezoning meetings, and appear to not care one whit about what is going on. It turns out that the owners are a corporation in Pennsylvania. Well, since I happen to live in good ol' PA myself, I plan to drop them a letter, stating the concerns and requesting some input regarding fencing. If I get no response, I will not give up. I will press on in any way that I can, including local publicity that will reflect negatively on this corporation. It is sad to me that so many who are interred there and their families are at the mercy of an uncaring corporation that is responsible for protecting them, and treating them with respect. Bob extends his thanks to all of the Patsyfans who have written to the Winchester Star, and who've spoken out about this issue, and credits us with helping to stop the encroachment of cheap businesses near Shenandoah. Now it's up to the owners of Shenandoah to do their part. Thanks to all for the support. I won't rest until I'm sure that Patsy is protected and respected appropriately. I'll keep y'all posted.

Hey guys, Been awhile- a few months actaully. Bill- Thanks for the response, I have YET to find Anna and am starting to worry... LINDA from VA, Winchester- I am about 5 minutes from you- we gotta TALK, girl! I can hook you up with a few legitimate friends, but may I say- they attach themsleves in NO way to Patsy's fame, though they knew, played, or hung around with her. She was a great lady. I wish I had known her. On topic- You know, I just can't believe that the media so overlook Patsy's charitable and bighearted side. The more I dig and question, I am blown BACK by the works she did in private. As done in the class of a True Lady, may I say. WHY oh WHY don't more speak of this? As far as the zoning- looks like we're going to loose that one. Seems a few think that her grave is now marked ownership of her name. Sorry Per- Had to say it. Some believe promoting business's around her resting site will be condusive to their buisness, and gathering business in. You guys are oh so right- we need to protect her. It is a sacred place. My own dad's sacred resting spot is right next to a roaring lil' place called Charlestown Road- Rt 9. You can't visit without the peering gaze of the public. HELP! What can we do? Personally, I find that it is a soothing, gentle, beautiful place... where solace is found. Patsy's resting spot I mean. I only go once a year. It is very serene. I have written, but as I am not a citizen of VA, or Winchester... my word doesn't count for much. They moved a whole cemetery here where I live to BUILD the retail Malls Strip, I'm talking a 200 year old+ to current used Graveyard, on TOP of the old graveyard. PLEASE, tell me what to do.. just point me.... What you guys do here, just wow- unbelieveable. I am stunned every time I come back in... I know she is loved, but the site just gets so much better each time. I wish my health afforded me more time to post. What you guys do can't be measured.. it just can't. Linda- letter already sent, snail and email. Love you, Patsy Lovin' People

This is still on subject: Loretta Lynn was here yesterday (8-4-02) for a concert. When she was introducing her (twin) daughters, she told all of us that Patsy was named after her friend, Patsy Cline. Then she said to Patsy, "This is Patsy country, Hon, and there are a lot of Patsy fans here" .. to which there was a giant roar and applause. Just thought you would like to know. I also know for a fact that Loretta took a private Winchester tour of all things Patsy, including the grave site. A fellow from the Fairgrounds in Warren County took her.

Hey Patsypals!!! Just got some great news from Winchester!! Go to Lisa Flood's Patsified! site and click on NEWS for the nitty gritty, but: I've been in contact with Abbe Kennedy of the Commission in Winchester, who has told me that the rezoning proposal, which originally included commercial and residential zoning, now EXCLUDES commercial, and will only have residential! Also, there will be a 50 foot buffer zone between the end of the residential area and Shenandoah, marked by pine trees. This is wonderful news, but I understand that the folks in Winchester still plan to fight it, with the correct assumption that a row of pine trees won't keep kids out of the cemetery. I agree with this. But, I do have to say that I'm thrilled that this is a huge step in the right direction! I'm sure Patsy's cheerin' us on, so let's not give up the fight! The next important date is August 21, when the meeting will take place. Bob Van in Winchester has told me that his neighborhood group plans to have a large contingency at that meeting. We look forward to hearing from him, wish him luck on the 21st, and thank him for keeping us posted! And, thanks to all who have posted at the Winchester Star in support of our Darlin'! Patsy4ever, Y'all!

I just wanted to let you all know that I just finished a book that was given to me as a gift. It's called "Love Always Patsy", subtitled "Patsy Cline's Letters to a Friend". The book consists of reprints of Patsy's letters to a young girl who started a fan club for Patsy and with whom Patsy became friends. There are side notes about the events in Patsy's life, and of many other Nashville artists of the time. I truly enjoyed hearing Patsy "speak", and found some information I didn't previously know. Hope you all get a chance to read it and enjoy! Patsy forever!

Hi Patsypals: It is time for us to unite, and do something to help Patsy. You may not be aware of this, but there is a proposal on the table in Winchester to re-zone the area near Shenandoah Memorial Park, where Patsy is laid to rest. This re-zoning plan includes large commercial plans, which means going to the cemetery, and dealing with strip malls, noise, and pollution in your face. I can't imagine anything so disturbing and disrespectful. Patsy's grave is about to be desecrated, and we CAN and must try to make a difference. The proposal is likely going to be on the agenda of a meeting in August of the Planning Committee for Winchester. A local group is working to stop it, and I think that we must make our feelings known about this issue as well. If you go to, click on the "Forum" page, then click on "Winchester". We've already got the issue there, and people are weighing in on it. We all take the time to post, chat, and share our love for Patsy on great sites like this. So, PLEASE, take the time to do this for Patsy. She needs our help. If you do post, think about all of the other civic-minded reasons that this re-zoning is detremental, like traffic, pollution, overcrowding, etc., and not just the obvious Patsyfeelings. We don't want to be discredited as just following our emotions. We won't help Patsy any with that. Please, let's do this. Together, we can help make a difference for Patsy. E-mail me with any questions, and/or check out the Patsy news page at Lisa Floods's Patsified website. I'll do anything I can to help. I am so passionate about this, and feel that finally, for once, there is something we can do for Patsy and her family. Patsy's counting on us, so GET WRITIN' Y'ALL!!

Lindsay, we must have been running the street of Nashville together, HA HA, I was singing Patsy all over the place. BTW, I am sure many of you are also fans of Loretta Lynn. I know Patsy was. They have an e-mail thingy like we do. She will be here in Winchester, well, Warren County, at the fair Aug. 4th. I hope to meet her. I will be doing a Patsy Tribute there also. We need to get out and meet these people while they are still here. Close as I was I never met Patsy. I sure do meet a lot of her family, they are everywhere around here... hahaha. Even a girl around 30 who said she was Patsy's sister and one said she was her daughter. Hmmm, do the math, I told them, they better study up the shut up... well, kinda, wanted to though... LOL I will get a picture of that one yet, Julie.

I would appreciate help as we would like to dedicate this building and place a plaque on it in honor of Patsy, at a Patsy Cline night party on August 24, 2002. Thank you.

Hello everyone... First of all, I want to say thank you to you, Per, for creating and maintaining such a wonderful website for Patsy. I do check out the fan forum every now and then to keep up on the latest Patys happenings, but this is the first time I've ever posted here. I just wanted to share an experience I had. I've been a Patsy fan for awhile now, but I finally made it down to Nashville this past weekend. I of course toured the Ryman auditorium, went to Tootsies, Ernest Tubb's record shop, and the Grand Ole Opry. I drove past her dream house on Nella Drive as well, but I just didn't have the nerve to get out and ask the owners if I could talk a look inside. I was very happy to see that Nashville is still giving her the recognition she deserves. There were photos of her everywhere: at Tootsies, along the walls at the Ryman, and life size photos both at Ernest Tubb's shop and at the new Opry. Alot of the souvenier shops downtown were playing her music as well, and I was happy that the gal singing, when I was in Tootsies, chose to sing "Crazy" for us. I would be happy to send anyone photos if you'd like to see them (if you don't mind me being in a few of them!!), just let me know.

Hello. My name is Jennifer. I am so glad that to see that someone thinks as much of Patsy as I do. She was absolutely wonderful. I have always said that I was born about 50 years to late. I wish that I could have been born around the time that she was so popular. I have rarely ever heard someone sing as smooth as she did. In my book there has very rarely ever been anybody that could compare to her.I am so glad that you are keeping her memory alive and well. I have a daughter and she thinks that Patsy Cline hung the moon. She is not the least bit interested in today's music. She would rather listen to old country music than anything else. All I can say is keep up the good work. I really have enjoyed your site.

A friend of mine just found a reel to reel tape of Patsy. He knows I am a fan of Patsy and so he gave it to me. It is a DECCA STEREOTAPE. Patsy Cline's Greatest Hits. The number on the box is ST74-4854. I have the cassette, and the front of the box looks just like it. I was just wondering if anyone could give me more information on it. I am not interested in selling it or anything like that, I would like to know what it might be worth for insurance purposes. The box is still in very good condition. If anyone has information, please let me know. Keep up the good work and thanks for all your hard work.

Patsy Cline is one of the greatest female singers that I have EVER heard and that will never change. There is not a living soul that could ever truly duplicate her sound. I have sang many of her songs in karaoke and for a long time there, I was kiddingly called "Patsy" by many friends and fellow singers. They told me that I did her songs so well, and that I had that deep down "feeling" for the music, like Patsy had. What a wonderful compliment. To me, one of the best compliments I could ever have! She is missed, that is for sure, but her music will forever go on! She has a voice that you just cannot forget! Thanks for letting me say my little something here.

I am a big Patsy fan, never a day goes by when I don't listen to her at some point during the day. One day while at work, a fellow employee asked me why I listen to that "OLD" music for. I replied, "do you know who that is?", they replied "yeah, it's Patsy Cline". I said, "that is right, and there never will be a singer as good as Patsy Cline ever". They replied that other people have sung her songs better. Now I was mad, I replied that there is no such thing as a bad Patsy Cline song, unless someone else is singing it. Thanks, to everyone who keeps Patsy's memory alive.

Hello All! It's been awhile since I graced this site and I am thrilled to death that its still here and going, it looks great. You all more than likely don't remember me, I last posted several years ago, I have divorced since then and moved and changed jobs about two or three times. But now I am just recently a married woman again and very happy, the last time I posted I was Donna Maggerise and I lived in Northport, AL at the time. Per, I sent you those pics of Patsy's stuff at the Grand Ole Opry museum, I just went to Nashville for my honeymoon and lord was it a hoot! Of course, I went in to Tootsie's and bought me a shirt and sat in for a listen, they had a great band playing that night, and then afterwards we went to the Ryman for Bluegrass Night, my husband met Vince Gill, he was there performing, and he spoke to him and shook his hand, that was a great thrill for him.

Nashville sure has changed alot, I rode over to Music Row and looked at the Owen Bradley park they dedicated to the Late Owen Bradley, it is really nice. I have lots more pics of Patsy, I went to Camden several years ago and took 2 rolls of film of everything there, I have 2 rubbermaid tubs full of pictures of everything Patsy there is in Nashville and in between! I go to Nashville at least once or twice a year and my next goal is Winchester! My husband's family lives in Oklahoma, so we travel alot! We have only been married 2 weeks, I am so happy and thankful for him. I went in to the new Country Music Hall of Fame in Nashville, I had some likes and some dislikes about that place, the room that they have the Hall of Fame plaques in is absolutely awesome! I went to the old Hall of Fame when it was near Music Row and they had Patsy's lighter that had a rebel flag on it that sang "Dixie" in there, and the clock that was in the plane when it crashed and also her gold wristwatch they found, and do you know they had nothing on display for her, all they had was her picture, a short paragraph or two and one of her dresses her mom made for her, that was it!! That definitely was my dislikes about the whole place.

The cool thing was Marty Stuart has a collection on display and in it is Patsy's old train case, it has her name and address monogrammed on it. Marty said he found it in an antique shop several years ago downtown Nashville, he bought it for $75 and added it to his collection. I was thankful someone knew what to do with it, I couldn't believe someone would sell such a thing! If I had it, I sure as heck wouldn't sell it! It just wasn't the same as the old hall of fame, but it sure is big! Well, I have enjoyed coming back and looking around here and I will return soon and keep more in touch and I am thankful for all the people that are keeping Patsy's memory alive, she is more popular now than ever, my husband said to me while we were in Nashville, he said just imagine if she were still alive today, he said I'd bet she'd still be at it, and I smiled and said "you bet your boots she'd still be at it and #1 at that. That has been a dream of mine since I became familiar with Patsy, what would've today been like with Patsy Cline around?? I know I'll never find out, but it sure is a nice dream. Well, I'll get off of here and get to bed, nice being back and we'll all talk later! God Bless!

Comment: Hello Donna! How nice to hear from you again! It's been a while, and it seems that a lot has happened in your life during that time... Welcome back! /Per

Hi again Per, I wanted to thank Bill. Had a question for you. Anna (Louise) stated that Patsy never underwent plastic surgery as people are led to believe. That they stitched her up, to stop the bleeding, she just about bleed to death, and then once she was stableized, the doctor went in later, and took out the stitches and neatened the ones up he put back. That Patsy used to have horrible headaches, press her hand and palm against her head as hard as she could, and was known to have blackouts from occasion to occasion... This is to the best of her recollection and knowledge. The reason I bring the second up is that she said she thought that the pain, and the way she healed, was a reason Patsy just didn't have it done. Anyone know? No one I can find remembers anything about Patsy having this done, and since I know your site projects truth only- thought- well, where else WOULD I ask. ;)

You must understand that I do learn all I can about Patsy, and anything new I have to either research out, confirm, and then remember. Surprisingly it is the last that is most difficult. LOL. And I also have learned if you want solid truth, you ask here. I am amazed at Per and Julie and people who post, who so transcend the gap of death to allow us to continue to learn, and feel we know her in some small way. Lending knowledge, asking questions, the truth is found here... I am amazed, I can still pull out a record (yes, I still listen to them) of Patsy, and she is as true in that song and presence as I could only assume she was in life. On one hand I feel so priviledged every time I hear her, and on the other, a little bit sad that there is so little video footage of her left. From that I have seen, I say WOW! An entertainer of entertainers! And that isn't an easy feat! Merdy, run away train, will try to check back for an answer. Lord only knows when.

Bill - thankyou! You know. ;) Respectfully submitted for your review, as always, Michael

Hi All: Per, this is such a great site!! It is so informative, and just when I think I know all there is to know about our gal, I learn something new here, and it's so wonderful that Julie posts here -- Julie: Thank you, we appreciate it, and that you're willing to give of your time to us. I wanted to share with you all that I just made a trip to Nashville and Camden. It was a fun, yet very moving experience. I had the honor of having Lisa Flood post some pictures, and a little narrative on her Patsified site, and invite ya'll to drop in and check it out. I also wrote a long story about it on writinaftermidnight, but it's not posted yet. Please know that the pictures and narrative relating to Camden are from my heart, not from any morbid curiosity, etc. I love Patsy with all of my heart, and just wanted to share this moving experience with people love Patsy as much as I do, but who may never get the chance to go there to pay their respects. So, drop by, and leave some love and prayers if you get a chance. I just can't get enough of Patsy, and listen to her music constantly, since it just seems so soothing. I'm also interested in her in terms of the person she was, I think I'd have loved to have been her friend she seemed like my kinda gal. Per, keep up the great work at this site. If there's ever anything I can do to be of help, in any way, drop me a line. How many of you folks are goin' to Winchester this September?? All the best, Patsy4ever, Ya'll!! Theresa

I had the priviledge to meet a vocalist by the name of "Joyce Smith". She is from the Patsy Cline era. Patsy held off recording the song "If You've Got Leavin' On Your Mind" so that the Canadian artist could have a go at it. Joyce was nominated for "Top Female Vocalist" in Nashville, back then. Joyce has a record signed by "Patsy" that was personally given to her. Joyce, although in her early sixties now, still sings in her band called "Rodeo Wind". Her husband, a retired "rodeo performer", plays bass-guitar as one of the multi-talented musicians. I requested that she'd sing "If You've Got Leavin' On Your Mind" and it brought heart-felt tears to my eyes... It was the closest thing to being in the presence of Patsy. Joyce is a very beautiful woman. I had the priviledge of singing with her and her band at a jam session... awesome... She is acknowledged in the "Alberta Music Hall of Fame", and she still contributes to the world of music by singing, and supporting the industry, and present day singers in a facet of positions of responsibility. She is an "icon of musical pioneers"... I love music and Patsy Cline forever!!
