I am thankful for all the recordings and articles that can still be found on Patsy Cline! I do welcome any fans to send information on Patsy Cline events! She was my third cousin on my father's side (he is also from Winchester). It is truly a blessing to be able to remember her at her gravesite in Winchester and visit the various landmarks of history she made for Winchester, VA. I am proud to be a part of her family!

Looks like we get another greatest show from CMT. I got my copy of Country Music Magazine today and they say the show will air June 8. The 100 songs are listed alphabetically in the magazine. Patsy has 3 songs: "Crazy", "I Fall to Pieces" and "Sweet Dreams". The complete list can be found at List has a lot of classics and some current stuff. Patsy has 3, Hank Sr 4, Loretta and Tammy both 2 songs in the list. Will the number one Jukebox Song be the number one greatest country song? There is a write up on "Sweet Dreams" and photo. Also the book, "Remembering Patsy" got a nice review. Always, Jimmy

It is so good to find this forum and read recent posts. It shows that Patsy Cline has not been forgotten. She was taken from us many years ago, but her music lives on, thanks to people like you who created and maintain this forum, as well as to those who take the time to visit. I am glad I'm not alone in remembering her and her music. Best to all. Larry

I am looking for poster sized pictures of Patsy Cline for the walls of my dental office treatment rooms. We presently have many such pictures of other music icons like Elvis, Sinatra, The Beatles and others. Their music plays throughout the office and on chairside headphones. Our patients love it. I would really like to have one treatment room's walls dedicated to Patsy Cline. I'm having difficulty finding anything. Can anyone help?

I began listening to Patsy Cline albums as a young child. My grandfather played her albums every time I stayed with him and my grandmother. In 1989, my grandmother passed away, and my grandfather decided to hand over those albums to me. I then began listening to them over and over and over. I was around the age of ten when I first heard Patsy's strong yet sweet sounding voice. I am now 26, and cannot listen to her music without singing along. Patsy Cline was a unique woman. Her style and grace was unmatched. There are many great female vocalists out there now, but none that will ever take the place of the fabulous Patsy Cline.

Just watched "Sweet Dreams" yesterday. Always gets me a little emotional. But if we did not have the technology we have we would not have her recordings, her pictures. I bought a Patsy Cline CD about a year and a half ago, my neice in-law came in and said "YOU BOUGHT A PATSY CLINE CD?" I proudly said "YES". I told her you don't know what you are missing. I have been a fan ever since I learned of her from the movie "Sweet Dreams". It seemed that it was meant for her to not stay with us long. The hard life she had, the wreck that almost killed her and then the plane crash that took her life. I am always listening to my CD's and tapes of hers and listen to the oldies stations and hear her on the radio. I have 2 twin neices and one of them is into singing with me when we hear Patsy Cline and she asks to listen to her CD. She is only 6 years old. I am so glad she shares with me my fondness of Patsy's music. I feel it is positive music and good for her to listen to. If Patsy were here I just know that she would be on top in the music world. Making all others pale in her comparison. She will live on through her songs and pictures and of course her children. 100 years from today people will still be listening to her music, I know that I would be. Thanks for listening!!!

Hi Per and all - hope this finds you well. Just wanted to let you all know, if you haven't found out already, there's a very interesting E-Bay posting currently up for a 1961(?) Carnigie Hall Program AUTOGRAPHED by ours truly, Miss Patsy Cline, from her one and only legendary performance there with The Grand Ole Opry. I have no clue if the autograph itself is authentic or not, but the program sure looks to be. I believe it's also signed by the late Marty Robbins. If I had $299.00 in my pocket, I know where my money would go... God Bless You all and, as always, thank you Per for your dedication to our favorite Queen of Country & Pop. Your Friend, Jared

I love Patsy Cline. I think she is wonderful. Her voice is out of this world. I love the movie about her, I think it's sad that we had to lose such a great singer, and my favorite songs by her are "Crazy", "Sweeet dreams", "Walking after midnight", "Back in babys arms". Thanks you for this page, I'll always love her. It's a shame music can't be as good as it was back then.

Hi, everyone: I'm hoping someone can help me with some info on a PATSY picture, it's the one of Patsy, On stage at the OPRY in 1962, This version of the picture has been colorized, using oil paint, the photo is the one on: Live @ the Opry. I emailed the folks at the Ryman, and asked if they could make a copy of it, they said..... GUESS WHAT...... No!!! I've tried and tried to get a copy of the colorized version, but am not having ANY luck at all, can someone give me more info on this picture? Thanks

Patsy Cline is my hero and idol. She came and went long before my time, but I know her and love her just the same. I am a country singer to and her songs are what fill up most of my gigs. She once said, "If you can't do it with feeling, then don't do it at all." I feel the exact same way. People laugh, but I truly feel that when I stand on stage she is there with me, guiding me. When I move to Nashville I can't wait to see everyone's faces when they see that she's back!

Hi, Does anyone know where I can get a copy of the June 1960 Ozark Jubilee Video featuring Patsy with Cowboy Copas? From previous posts I've read, it seems that Tower Productions is not a reliable source. And I couldn't find it on e-bay. If anyone could make a copy for me from their own, I'd sure appreciate it and be happy to pay for it. Thanks for any info.

Hi gang, Julie here... I saw the entries about the scrapbook and thought I would add some info... The scrapbook was given to Dottie West, who held on to it for me. When her house burned, it was saved, and had some charred edges, etc... all of the scotch tape that Mom had used to place things in it was dried up and falling out, leaving all the items loose. I first replaced everything by fitting it all back in place. You could see where the tape had been on the page, and then it would match up with a place on the page, just like a big puzzle. Most of the contents were not pictures, but paper items, like charts from radio stations, and magazines. There are also some articles from newspapers and magazines. Many don't even tell what magazine or date. Mom was only in her late 20's, I think, when she was putting these things together, so it is just a typical scrapbook in the very sense of the word. Some of the charts have things circled, like "I Fall To Pieces" or "Crazy" as they showed up in the charts.

There are a couple of pieces of sheet music for "Walkin' After Midnight" and "A Poor Man's Roses" and "Crazy". There are also a few notes and well wishes from the time she had the car accident in 1961. After I found out where everything belonged in the book, I realized it would never be in condition to handle without ruining it further. I had begun to scrapbook myself, through a friend that worked with the Creative Memories company, and knew it need to be preserved properly. I purchased a 12x15 archive quality book, and placed every article from each page into the new book in the exact same manner as it had originally been. If there was only one thing on a page, that was all that went on that page. If there was a blank page, I left a blank page. I also took the first two pages from the original book and placed them on the first two pages of the new scrapbook. (They were a little smaller, and fit just right onto the page. This way, you can see the original pages and their condition.)

One of the neat things about seeing this personal side of her is that she was a true fan of other artists herself. She had a couple of cut out photos on the back pages, and I'm sure if she had continued to add to the book, there would have been more, since there were still blank pages ready to be filled. She did have a picture of Elvis among those, but it is not a photograph, and she is not in it. She never did meet Elvis. I don't know if we would or could ever publish the book. I really haven't considered it. Being a personal scrapbooker for my family and myself, and a collector, I have tried to collect things today, and save them and I have a second scrapbook, to add these new things to. I have found some of the original magazines that she had cut articles out of. I would like to thank everyone that has contributed to this quest, by sending newspaper articles and such from different parts of the nation...and the world. It is a big job, but it is fun, too. Maybe we can find some way one day to share it more. Thanks for all the interest, and emails and mail I get... And Thanks as always, to Per and this great way to communicate with the world. May God Bless You All, Julie

Hello all, To Charlie and Julie, have y'all thought of publishing Patsy's scrapbook? I think that would be a great idea. I've never seen the picture of Patsy and Elvis when Patsy got to meet Elvis, I know this was one of Patsy's favorite pictures as she was an Elvis fan. What do the rest of you fans think?

Hello Bill! Thank you ever so much for your very kind response about Patsy's box set and that two CD set. You'll never know how thrilled I am to have found this wonderful site to such a great artist and I have always loved Patsy's music so much. I have a dear friend named Debbie who can sing a little like her!!! I have a question, was Patsy very good friends with Cowboy Copas and Hawkshaw Hawkins since they all died in that tragic plane crash? Did they all know each other? You know it is so hard to get some of these great Bear Family box sets and I am trying to get all of Ernest Tubb's sets. I have two great box sets by him and I'm sure that I will get more of them real soon. I know that Ernest knew Patsy quite well and also artists such as Dottie West, Jim Reeves, Faron Young and so many others. You can listen to a beautiful tribute Eddie Stubbs did in memory of Patsy, Cowboy and Hawkshaw on It is hard to believe that 40 years ago these great artists passed away. They will always be remembered.

Maheen, all but 12 of Patsy's studio recordings have been released in Box Set form by MCA Records. The 12 tracks not on the MCA Box Set are available in a 2-CD set from Sundown Records titled "Crazy Dreams: The Four Star Years". You can find complete details about these sets on Per's CD page.
Stephanie, Patsy's scrapbook was one of the few things that was saved when Dottie's house burned. A couple of the pictures have burn marks on them. Other than that, the book was not harmed at all. Due to age and deterioration, Julie transferred the contents from the original book to a new binder.

I have always been a huge Patsy Cline fan and I am 18 years old. I am a totally blind boy and I really love traditional country music, but I can't understand why the Bear Family hasn't released a box set on all of Patsy's recordings. I would love to hear from any Patsy Cline fans out there. I am also a huge fan of Hawkshaw Hawkins and Cowboy Copas!!! It is rare for an 18 year old to be into this great music.

Patsy was a guest on a few PHILLIP MORRIS COUNTRY MUSIC SHOW pre-recorded radio programmes... I remember listening to them in 1959, but were recorded in 1958. I have a couple of the transcription discs, and Patsy was plugging her hit WALKIN AFTER MIDNIGHT .. she doesn't have much to say, but is interesting in that either the backing group didn't change key, or Patsy lost her place, but there is a minor "fluff" during the song... The programme is full of how cigarettes are really good for you. Does anyone else have any more of these shows? Dave

Howdy, I just got a wonderful autograph by Patsy from the fellow she gave it to in 1961 (or 62- he was 6 or 7 at the time). It was at an outdoor concert with Ferlin husky at a place called Pendelton Park in Pendelton, Indiana. He remembers that she was wearing a cowgirl outfit and was very sweet to him. I would love to have any more detail or info about this concert. I'm looking for an original picture to frame with it, too. God bless you! Bob

Hey gang, I just thought this might be a little interesting to you guys, and you might want to pass it along... Some of you are familiar with the Music Valley area here in Nashville. That's were the Opryland Hotel and all is... Well, the Music Valley Car Museum is going to auction off a lot of the cars they have on display. I am not sure how many or exactly which ones, but for example, Dottie West's 1975 Fleetwood Sedan will be auctioned... This car was acquired through the IRS auction. It has the title with her name on it, and there are floor mats with her name also... I am not sure what else will be offered, but there are several great cars over there, like Tom T. Hall's Nissan Limo... an old pickup from Randy Travis... Jimmy Dickens' 1959 Caddy... Ricky Skagg's Jaguar... A white limo that was in the funeral procession of Elvis, and many more... As I said, I don't know whether all of these will be auctioned, but it should be very interesting! The auction is scheduled for Sat., April 5... Check it out! Julie

Alan, Charlie and Julie have the scrapbook now. Charlie had it with him when he appeared on a "Music City Tonight" tribute special several years ago. In 1997, Julie and Jan Howard browsed through it during a segment on Lorianne Crook and Charlie's Chase's News show on TNN. Julie has transferred the contents to a new binder because the original was falling apart.

They are not turning up in the Hal Leonard published songbooks or in any of our other sources. I've also tried contacting SONY/Acuff Rose Music - they weren't able to help. Does anyone have sheet music for these:

Honky Tonk Merry-Go-Round
Hungry for Love
I Can See an Angel

Thanks for your help. We really appreciate it!

Hey y'all! As some of you know I am not only a huge Patsy fan, but an avid fan and collector of Starday Records, an independent label. I recently purchased a Trucker LP and there was a picture of Charlie Dick on the back. If I am not mistaken, he was a promotions guy for Starday from 1964-68. I thought that would be interesting to some of you.

I haven't posted for awhile but I check this site very often. Someone recently asked about Leon Kagarise, the man that recorded a lot of country and bluegrass artists "live shows" in the 50's and 60's. including Patsy Cline. Anyway, I see him every once in a while. He came very close to making a deal with Sony Music, but it fell through. Just last week he was to sign with Time-Life, and the deal is on hold because of some kind of corporate problems that Time-Life is having. If and when a deal is signed I will post with the details.

Does anyone have access to play lists of BBC radio programs in the last months of 1962? I am almost certain it was in November 1962 but that isn't 100% definate. It was definately "Heartaches".

Prince Albert, SK Canada - Saturday, March 15, 2003 at 00:29:59 (MET)
Comment: Patsy did not record "Blue". Bill Mack wrote the song with Patsy in mind, but she never got a chance to record it. The song was recorded by Bill Mack himself, and by a yodeller named Kenny Roberts, in the sixties, and also by Kathryn Pitt in Australia in 1993, before LeAnn Rimes released it in 1996. I have also received questions from people who say that they have found an MP3 file on the net, where it is stated that Patsy is singing "Amazing Grace". That is wrong. Patsy did not record that song, either. I received a copy of that MP3 file, and when I listened to it, it sounded very much like LeAnn Rimes to me... LeAnn recorded the song for her album "You light up my life - Inspirational songs" in 1997. /Per
Hi Guys... I'm old enough to have heard Patsy do her thing. If there's anyone that wants to hear as close to Patsy Cline as there can possibly be... Please try to see or hear Logan Wells tribute to Patsy Cline. Shes from the Cleveland Ohio area. A GREAT LADY AND A GREAT SINGER... She does not only Patsy's stuff... You name it she can do it... Logan has a web site for those that would like to hear more of her... She's great... And by the way, I'm just another fan...

Hello Patsy Fans, I would just like to say thanks to Per for this wonderful website, that we have a person that cares enough to stay involved to keep this going. Thanks alot. My wife and I had the priviledge and honor of meeting Mrs. Hilda Hensley (Mom Hensley - as she told us to call her this) in 1994. I can honestly say that she was a very down to earth, sweet and hospitable person, we sat at her kitchen table for two hours and talked about Patsy. Mom Hensley let us take pictures of all the awards, gold and platinum albums and of the oil paintings that people had sent her through the years. As far as the Sweet Dreams movie goes, I'm glad it was made and I think it did alot to spark a renewed interest in Patsy, but I wished it would have been more accurate. Mom Hensley said it was a joke! The car wreck Patsy was involved in was a head on, not from the side as portrayed in the movie. Also she and her brother did not go to the liquor store to buy alcohol but to a fabric shop to buy supplies for Mom Hensley to make Patsy some clothes. These are just to name a few. One thing you don't hear often is that Patsy grew up in the Baptist church singing specials with her mother. She had a love of gospel music. Mom Hensley said this was one of Patsy's goals in her music career was to make a Gospel album and also a Christmas album, can you imagine what those albums would have been like? Patsy singing "Peace in the Valley" or "White Christmas". That would have been awesome. LeAnn Rimes' song "Blue" was originally written for Patsy and her record producer, Owen Bradley, received a copy of the song shortly before Patsy passed away. Owen said for some reason he never got around to playing it for Patsy. Could you imagine Patsy singing "Blue", she would have loved the yodel part on the word blue. LeAnn Rimes did a great job on it. It really makes you wonder what would have been. I just received my copy of the new book "Remembering Patsy" and it's great, I encourage everyone to buy a copy of it. There are some pictures that I've never seen and I thought I had seen all of them. Patsy, thanks for all of the wonderful songs and your life and legacy that you left behind and some wonderful children. We will keep your memory alive. Troyce Hendricks

I am wondering why there are so many comments that say there are NO ceremonies going on in Nashville or Winchester for the 40th anniversary of Patsy's death. In fact Winchester had a memorial at Patsy's grave site and also at Camden, TN. I sing 2-3 nights a week and everyone was singing in tribute to Patsy. The important dates and events are part of the calendar on the local forum. I have a forum here ( for Patsy news and fans. When folks 'search' on the net in Winchester, there are several times many places that it will take you. Since the several forums here all have links to Patsy pages, we get many many hits and people asking about her. Judy Sue is probably the number one person to talk to since she is at the Visitors Center. Patsy has not been forgotten here. There are several of us who go out and sing her songs so no one can forget. I do 53 of her songs and I only do the "top 10" upon requests. There are so many more, like "Why Can't He Be You" that are so good. If you come to Winchester and especially Labor Day Weekend, that is all you see... if you look for it. Take a formal tour. Ask Judy Sue. Come to the Berryville Moose on a Friday night.. You will see Sonny Fry who knew her and played music with her. I do sing "Crazy" and "Sweet Dreams" just for him. She is alive here, believe me. Wait until that museum is open. We can't wait!!

Comment: Patsy has two children, Julie and Randy, both with Charlie Dick. Randy wants to keep a low profile, but he's around... /Per
Patsy Cline fills my thoughts today. So, I write these words to share with you, her fans. Not long ago, when I first heard Patsy sing, I was captured by her spirit. She took me by the heart and delivered me into the realm of country music. One Saturday night, as I sat listening to the Grand Ole Opry, I wrote the following essay:

"I sit here listening to the Opry – there is nothing that compares to it in this world. Never has music made me feel so close to my own humanity. I close my eyes and wrap my unassuming arms around the Texas Troubadour and we waltz across Texas. As the last note lingers, I turn around and cool my weary feet in the muddy waters of the Chattahoochee. I have anguished over so many lost loves with Patsy and learned to look at life with reckless abandon alongside of Mel. Whenever life has handed me an unexpected twist of fate, the simple sweet sound of a country tune has defined my meaning. Comfort and solace, laughter and strength have poured into my soul and healed this wounded human excuse. I cannot pick a guitar; I cannot sing a single chord. I do so appreciate the uncanny ability of a songster’s magic to wipe my heart clean of hurt. I revel in the merriment of an upbeat tune and laugh along with the tease of a playful melody. Where else can a body reconcile itself to its roots? Where else can the meaning of life be explained so simply? How I love the untangled approach to living! How I appreciate the explicit look at mundane things! Life is not difficult – people make it so! Country music gently turns us around and faces us with its simplicity. Thank God for all the men and women that He has blessed with the ability to connect with the rest of us lowly beings."

Forty years after the death of Patsy Cline, my heart still aches with her loss. Forty years from now, more hearts will share these same feelings. Why? As I have written in the past, "I was swallowed up by her uncanny ability to translate human emotion into musical note. God must have lent us an angel." For this, Patsy lives on. Like her gravestone reads, "Death cannot kill what never dies." Her music makes her immortal.

Hi to Per and gang... Just watched the specials on CMT Canada and I liked the second special, MEMORIES OF PATSY, as it had some more comments from some of the ones in REAL PATSY CLINE special plus clips from others, and some footage and photos, that I don't recall ever recall seeing... Hopefully, CMT in the USA will broadcast it sometime or someone from the USA will broadcast some kind of special to recognize Patsy this year. As Pam mentioned, it is odd how CANADA CMT has done this and not the USA. Also, Patsy, I believed only toured a few times/places in Canada while she went all over the USA. It just seems strange to me, that the Canadian folk are /have made it a point to recognize Patsy by this special while the US folk haven't and I would of thought they would have something in Nashville or Winchester... That's all... Cheers, eh.....Jacki :)

Comment: No one seems to remember who it was. That recording is an overdub, made as an experiment during the '80s, and it was not even meant to be released, but for some reason it ended up on some master tapes, including the one used for the second release of the LaserLight 3-CD set. Patsy is alone in the original recording. /Per
Oh, Patsy, we miss you. Today is 40 years and your music is as alive in me as it was 40 years ago. My daughter and granddaughter love you too. I hope to visit Winchester this year and pay homage to the most beautiful voice that ever was. I was driving, fixing to put a Patsy tape in and the radio came on. The DJ was playing 2 Patsy songs in memory. I'm known as THE Patsy Fan on my local country station and request Patsy all the time. God Bless Charlie, Julie, Randy and the kids. Patsy, Heaven was so lucky when they got you. You're still #1, Hoss. Always, Shirley Atwood

I was going on 16 when we lost Patsy, and that was 40 years ago today! My father was a big fan, and we were talking about going to one of the benefit concerts on Sunday, March 3, 1963 at Memorial Hall in downtown Kansas City, Kansas. A highly popular country DJ on KCKN Radio here, Jack "Catfish" Call had died recently in a car crash, and this concert was held to raise money for his family. I think that word got out late that Patsy would be headlining, but the place was full all day. My father ran a large auto parts store nearby that was open on Sundays, but scheduling didn't permit any time off. We could have caught the last show if we had gone straight from work; we were only 5 minutes away! After the tragedy, many of our customers and friends who had been there to hear Patsy were still in shock, yet were able to tell you how wonderful Patsy sounded, and how meaningful it was to know that you had heard the last songs from her golden voice. That concert cost $1.50 a person, and to bring Patsy back would be priceless. Let's be thankful of her glorious music and her endless memories which will live on forever!

In the movie, "Sweet Dreams," Jessica Lange's portayal of Patsy was excellent. Hollywood did a good job in recreating the look and feel of Memorial Hall at the time. However, they had them in a Beechcraft returning to Nashville, and it was a Piper. Also, they crashed into trees in an open field, not into a mountain side as in the movie.

I will always have lifetime regret for missing the opportunity to see Patsy's last concert. And on ocassion, when I drive down 7th Street past Memorial Hall, I'll have "Sweet Dreams" playing! I am very happy that things are being done in Winchester, Camden & Nashville, TN to help memorialize Patsy. I don't know why we haven't done something here for Patsy on past anniversaries, but we should have a 50 year memorial concert here at Memorial Hall on or about March 3, 2013. The fans will come because they'll always be out there!

This is a very important day for rememberance, not only for myself, but also for the thousands of other Patsy Cline fans. Forty years, so hard to believe it has been this long, seems just like yesterday. I can't believe, that Country music radio stations in my area with the exception of one never made a mention to what this day meant to country music. There has been a huge void in country music for four decades now, it is only with the dedication of Per, and the many contributors to this site, that allow we the Patsy fans to keep going, knowing that Patsy will never be forgotten. I pray for Patsy's family on this day, as well as for all of my fellow Patsy fans around the world. Patsy, we love you and we will never forget you.

I must hand it to Canadian CMT. You have a greater appreciation and respect for real country music than your fellow CMT network to the south. It is unbelievable that nothing is being done to remember the 40th anniversary of the crash. And to think she was voted the most influential female country artist in CMT's own poll. I guess that means nothing really to them. Per, thank you for this wonderful site where Patsy can be properly remembered!

The Canadian CMT special will be a 2 hour show on Wednesday March 5th- the 1st hour will be the original documentary "The Real Patsy Cline", followed by the new show called "Memories of Patsy Cline". This will start at 9PM EST. According to CMT's web site (Canadian) the new show will feature interviews with childhood friends, family and current artists whom she influenced. I checked the American CMT site and there is nothing whatsoever to commemorate her death this week. Hopefully the US CMT will pick up this show at some point but for now, it is only being broadcast in Canada.

As we approach the anniversary of Patsy's death, and we celebrate her life and everything that she achieved, I think it is important to remember that we may have lost a beautiful singer, but Julia and Randy lost their mother at a very young age. We still enjoy her singing, and wonder how much more she would have recorded, but how much did those children miss having lost such a loving, caring mother? It is, after all, far more their loss than ours. Celebrate the life because, I think, that is what Patsy would want, but give a quiet thought on Wednesday to the ones left behind.

I'm looking for a specific piece of information... Does anyone know the origin of the song "Bottle of Wine and Patsy Cline"... Who wrote it, who sang it? And who recorded it??... I don't think Patsy had anything to do with the song as I was told it came out after her death... Thanks, Hal Kivlan

Comment: The song was written by Lindy Gravelle and Tommy Rocco, and recorded by Marsha Thornton in 1989. It is on her first album "Marsha Thornton", MCA MCAD-42319, produced by the legendary producer Owen Bradley, who also produced nearly all of Patsy's studio recordings. Unfortunately this album is very hard to get these days, since it is out of print. /Per
Hi everyone, I'm looking for a song that was released as a tribute to Patsy Cline in 1963. My husband thinks the name of the song is "Missing On A Mountain". There were lyrics about naming a star after Patsy. He has no idea who the artist is. It was played on WDON in Wheaton,MD. The DJ was Roy Self. This is the 2nd time I have posted this on the forum, but gave an incorrect e-mail address the first time. Thank you, Alice Spring,

I went on it to find my website that I have been looking for, for the past year. If you enter your name in Google it will list any site that has that name in it. I came on this site to find my old web site only because they use to have it linked from here. But now I guess it's true... My web site is gone... wimper... I did such a great job on my Patsy Cline page too... Yahoo sucks for merging with geocities... But the good news is I can see all my favorites on this site...

Hey y'all. It has been ages since I looked at the site. Hope everyone is doing well. I read the entry about how Dottie West is being shunned and I couldn't agree more. I just wanted to let y'all know that there is a DVD on the market called "Road to Nashville". It came out in 1967 and features Dottie singing two songs as well as Connie Smith, Webb Pierce, Marty Robbins and others... It includes over 25 acts. I have the DVD and it is awesome. Is there anything new on Patsy coming out soon? Take care. Wade

She helped me so very much in hard times with "Walking After midnight" and Sweet Dreams" and my fave. "You Belong to Me". I hope she is still singing in the stars with God.

Just wanted to say I received my Remembering Patsy book yesterday. It is really quite the gem, photos that I have not seen before, some neat ones of her, and several disc jockeys, I'd like to say that some of the clearest, and best pics ever taken of Patsy were taken by Les Leverett. I am alittle confused though I thought the tribute CD came with this book? There is a CD of Diane Krawl singing Crazy, but that's all. I'm asuming that the tribute CD is later in March. Anyone know for sure? If you haven't got a copy of this book yet, call your local book store to see if they ordered in this book.

My heart goes out to Beverly Hecht in the loss of her father. I have read just about every book on Patsy, and I think she really thought a lot of Donn Hecht. Even though she thought the song was too "pop" to begin with! We fans love the song and are thankful for what it did to start a career that would give us such wonderful music!

I would just like to offer this thought. How many times have you heard one of your favorite singers perform at an award show, or even sing on a live album (I guess CD is more appropriate now), and realized how flat they sound without modern technology. Listen to any of Patsy's live recordings and she sounds just as good as when in the studio. On her 'Live at the Cimarron', her first performance after her car accident, her voice is as beautiful and powerful as at any time, even though she complains about being off key and out of wind. When you are listening to Patsy, you are hearing the real thing. That, I think, must be part of the reason that her singing is still so popular. I suppose that I am just a little biased, but I think most of you will agree. Thanks for listening, Matthew Cann

Hi Per and all... just wanted to stop by and say hello since I haven't been here in a while. I've been working on my album so much that I haven't been very well informed on much else, but I did catch the (now old) news about Patsy's personal belongings being auctioned off by her siblings. I'm sure that I share many other Cline fan's anger and hurt over such a matter that surely could've been solved some other way. Although we all do as much as we can, there isn't enough professional support for such a legendary entertainer. I recently read somewhere that the CMA stars were offered first bid on the items but nobody responded. When I wrote Jan Howard about it, she said that she wasn't sure that she'd heard such.

Just the same, I hope that people will come together donate these items to the memory of our beloved legendary Patsy Cline, to the museum which she deserves and is LONG overdue! (and might I ad that I am appalled that the Country Music Foundation/Hall of Fame did NOTHING for a lady who is SUCH an important part of Country Music) If Cline fans can say anything, we can say that we are a family and that's something that many stars don't have in a fan backing. Thanks to everyone who raised money and purchased items for the good of the cause, and thank you Per, once again, for your website which honors our great lady so very well. May God Bless You all! Your Hoss, Jared

I am writing as a form of therapy, you see my dad passed away October, 18th 2002, of Heart Disease. I sit here listening to Patsy and I drown in tears. I am soooo happy that people still listen to her music, also I would like to thank the fans that make this site possible. It's nice to know that the people writing are possitive and nice.

Comment: I see that this rumour is mentioned both on this page and on this page, but I don't have a clue about whether this is true or not, and I don't remember if it is mentioned in any of the biographies... Julie, could you cast some light on this? /Per
First, Julie, THANK YOU for all your help. I wanted to let all you Patsy fans know, I bid and bought an MCA Patsy Cline Award for selling over 500,000 copies of "Here's Patsy Cline". It is a Cetified Gold Record award thru the AAM, and NOT RIAA or RIIA sealed. I bought it off an agent for MCA, who obtained it at auction. X agent. His name is Don Lemaire. I am still trying to pin down the history of this award, by all appearances, it looks authentic. (I opened the frame, There is also a seal on back.) SO! You KNOW where this puppy is going. I am asking for anyone who knows MCA's awards, or anything about the AAM, to contact me, if you know anything. They actaully are and have been a company... But any input at this point would be greatly appreciated. Make SURE to put Patsy in the subject line, or I delete. I was very excited to purchase this, for the reason of purchase, but welcome any input into authenticity beyond what is evident, and sealed. I can never thank Per, Bill, or Julie enough for this site, and their help. BTW, did Patsy EVER sing "What'll I do"? My mother swears she heard it, but I haven't. I don't see it on the list either. Any help there??? You all take care! M.M.Birmingham

Hi everyone... I just wanted to clarify one thing about the "eBay" post I made earlier, in regard to the last show posters. The posters we have all seen for sale are made up posters. If there is a poster from the last show it would not have Patsy as the big name entertainer... and it wouldn't have a picture. I was talking with Dad and I just wanted to make sure I have communicated it correctly. She was added to the bill. She also would not have been the major artist there. If you do see a genuine poster from the past it would sell for more than $10 and there wouldn't be a dozen of them for sale every week. These posters are just for fun. Pay attention to anything you are going to purchase. Read the description closely. There have been, for example, posters for a show in 1953 with Hank Williams, Patsy Cline, and Loretta Lynn all on the same show. The red flags should go up because Hank and Patsy never worked together, she was very young and unknown... Loretta was not singing and was home having a family... things like this are what will tell if something is real or not. Just wanted to make sure you understood. Thanks again, Julie... (GO TITANS!)

I do check Ebay on a daily or every other day basis. I do roll my eyes over stuff up for sale from time to time. "Those Patsy Cline clothes" come to mind. I have added a link to a page on my website that has Patsy a signature. It is the real deal. In regards to those Camden books, they printed several hundreds of those and did not sell them. There is a nice bio on each star and folks recount that bad day in history. Always, Jimmy W 1-12-03

Hello Everyone, boy it's been some time since I have signed here, that's for sure. I was checking the news page to see when the new Patsy Cline book is due. I put an order in 2 days ago, can't wait. Does anyone know the release date yet? I was also curious to know if anyone happens to know if there has been any deals made to release some of Leon Kagarise's collection of country music shows from the 50's and 60's that include performances of Patsy? I sure ya all remember him, right? I think it would be awesome to have some of these shows perserved on CD and released to the public. Thanks, Shane

Hi everyone... this is Julie Fudge. I just wanted to address the eBay questions... I go to eBay almost daily and check out the items that are offered under "Patsy Cline". I know there are a lot of auction sites, and I have been to some of the others, but I can't keep up with all of them. I am an eBay user and have made several purchases in many different catagories... I often find "Patsy" related items that are objectional for one reason or another, and if possible, I will involve myself in the clarification, or correction, etc. of these items... I would like to encourage anyone who wants to bid on an item, and needs further information about the item, to contact me with questions, and I will help as much as I can. ( Subject: eBay Item Question) There are some cases where the item may not be what you think, or may not be as "rare" as they claim, etc...

I am sure you have all seen the boguss show posters they have on there all the time. (For the record... THERE ARE NO SHOW POSTERS FROM THE LAST SHOW! and Patsy never performed with Hank Williams, and never toured with Loretta Lynn.) You can also contact some of these wonderful people (like Per, Jimmy Walker, Lisa Flood, Bill Cox, etc.) that know a lot of details, also. I have seen many boguss autographs, also. I have had people argue with me (thru the computer) about the authenticity of an autograph, only to stop their defense when I tell that I have handwriting samples to show. If there is an item on eBay that is being manufactured in an unlawful manner, I work to stop them, because of a desire to have control of the type of things that are offered in regard to "Patsy Cline". I do not want anyone to be mislead or dissapointed with products that are manufactured in regard to "Patsy Cline". Please feel free to contact any of us with your questions. We will be happy to help... (I hope I speak for everyone here :) ...) and have fun bidding. There are some great things out there.

As far as the item from Camden, TN... that is a program from a few years ago and I attended the show. In fact, I wrote a little letter to them, which is included in the program. I am assuming they have some left over and are selling them to add funds to a memorial fund. There has been talk of further memorials, other than the one mentioned. Jimmy Walker has more info about the current activities in Camden. Good luck to all you eBayers and again, thank you for all the continued dedication to Mom.

EBAY has really peeved me of late- the sellers. You look up Patsy, and find everything. One made me FURIOUS, it was so misleading. It was a sweater advertised as a Patsy Cline sweater, hardly any wear, through on black capri's, etc...etc.. you could look just like her in this same style.. implications much heavier than I am writing, check it out yourself. Blatant mis-use, abuse, and sickening. There is another that reads as follows that really got me too:

"This book is dedicated to Patsy Cline. Patsy Cline 1932-1963. On march 5th 1963 Grand Old Opry Stars Patsy Cline, Cowboy Copas, Hawkshaw Hawkins and pilot Randy Hughes died in a plane crash three miles northwest of Camden Tennesse. As a tribute to Patsy Cline, Birdsong Resort and Marina is selling 100 copies of the July 4th 1996 Benton County Music Festival booklet. This is a memorial to Patsy. We are selling these for $5.00 each of which $2.00 of the procedes will be donated to the Patsy Cline memorial fund to place a memorial marker at the crash site. This will only be available until the current inventory is sold. So grab your treasure while supply lasts."

Do they KNOW that there is already a Marker there, do they think REAL Patsy fans are NOT going to know there is, is the seller blatantly lying to make money off her name? Someone answer. I mean, it just goes on and on and on like this there, and it makes me furious to see people who have no right, title, or legal right to use her name for profit, further infringing upon her royalties that her heirs would receive by poachers using her name, and them never getting the money! They should have the sole rights! Man does that heat me. I hope it's true, because I send him an email explaining there has been a marker there for many, many years.

Happy New Year to all! I hope you all had a great Holiday season! I am sorry I haven't written over the Holidays, but I have been very busy, as I'm sure you have. Here at our house, we get up on Christmas morning, have our family time and soon my Dad (Charlie) will come over and Michelle, my daughter and her husband Nathan and our grandson, Cole. He is over a year old now and was a lot of fun this year. Then we get ready for the Fudge side of the family to come. There were 23 of us this year. After we made it through the day, we got up the next day and did it again with my side of the family! This year there were about 17 of us here that day! I was so glad to see everyone. Of course we don't get to see everyone and I miss them. I hope you all had a great time with family, friends, and loved ones.

I want to thank you all for the kind wishes and emails, and cards. I feel like I am a part of a much larger family than the ones that can come by and visit here. As always at this time of the year, we all want to think of the good things that can come in the new year. I hope this is a good year for you all. I hope to be more in touch with everyone. I can't thank you enough for all that you do. You are all so important to keeping Mom's memory alive. While I am here, let me just say, those of you that have been upset by the things that went on this year, I hope this year will be better. I know it is hard to understand why these things happen, but I hope you will try to understand. I have come to grips with it all. I know that these things were sold with the feeling that they would be better shared than packed away somewhere. I hope that you can understand. Remember that all the things of this world will pass away. Keep your eyes on what is important...truly important... May God Bless you and yours in this New Year! Always, Julie Fudge and family....... oh, and.... GO TITANS! (For all of you football fans out there!)

Just wanted to wish Julie, Randy and Charlie and families a happy new year, I would also like to ask Julie about her brother, how he is doing; I can never find anything about Randy, can Julie or someone fill me in? I know that after all these years that the love and the ever growing fans of Patsy's must surprise Charlie and the kids. I only hope that Patsy knew how much she was loved by her fans. I have seen the film "Sweet Dreams". I liked it, but in a way I didnt. I didn't like the way the showed Charlie mostly.

I have read and heard stories of the friendship of Patsy and Dottie West, I am a fan of Patsy's as well as of Dottie's; but here lately I feel that some folks in country music have been ignoring what Dottie has done for them. Every year I watch the CMA awards and feel they are shunning this great woman, I feel that Dottie should be placed in the Hall of Fame along with her dear friend Patsy! How can we Patsy's fans get Dottie inducted? who can we write or e-mail? Can Julie or Charlie give any suggestions? Not saying that the folks who have been inducted these past ten years don't deserve it, they earned it just like Patsy did. Can anyone help? Thanks... Great site, like coming back and reading it, keep up the good work.

An update to Jimmy Walker's post of December 27 is this info. from a Knoxville News-Sentinel article about TV shows this week that look back on various events: "If you like your reflections to include twang and steel guitars, then "Country's Most Shocking ... Deaths, Close Calls and Near Misses" (7 p.m., Wednesday on CMT) is more your speed. The special will reach back several years to include the kidnapping of Tammy Wynette, the plane crash that killed Patsy Cline and Johnny Cash's hostage standoff in Jamaica."

I'm 24 years old and I first heard Pasty Cline's music when I think I was about 6 years old. I have been a big fan ever since then. My parents listen to her music. I have always wanted to be a country singer but never thought that I could make it. I have watched "Sweet Dreams" a million times. I think Pasty Cline was the best country singer there ever was and still is to this day. It was so sad that her life had to end so soon. Every time that I watch her movie I cry at the end. I wish I could have met her. She is the best and always will be.

I applaud CPC, and the fans for a job well done. I am so very sorry, that I was not able to send a donation. If I had my way I would spend all I have to get Patsy's things where they belong. I have friends who just don't understand why I LOVE PATSY, I just tell them to just listen to ONE song and you will know. Merry Christmas to Charlie, Julie, Randy, Per, and ALL Patsy fans. May God bless you all.

I am a Patsy Cline fan and this is one of the best websites I ever been on. I went to the Country Music Hall of Fame resently and saw some wonderful items of Patsy's and it touched my heart. My sister bought me one of her CDs and I go to sleep to her music and I listen to it in the car and I love every song she sings.

If you have not read the news, through the link on Per's news page, Celebrating Patsy Cline, Inc. was successful in acquiring the two western styled blouses that were up for bid at Thursday's auction of Patsy's clothes and costumes in Beverly Hills. Several other items were purchased by anonymous bidders, and it is hoped that the items will be donated or loaned to CPC for the museum.

I want to take a moment to thank everyone who donated to the CPC Acquisitions Fund so that we could bid. This was a true grassroots effort from the fans, under the loving and protective umbrella of Celebrating Patsy Cline, Inc. We could not have been successful without your help.

Thanks to Theresa Shalaby and Lisa Flood for coming up with this idea, as well as their tremendous enthusiasm, hard work and love for Patsy Cline. Thanks to Judy Sue at CPC for embracing us "wild and crazy" fans who wanted to bring something of Patsy's back home to Winchester. As Theresa and Lisa have said, when we work together, we CAN make a difference. The auction yesterday was proof.

The next step is to complete the purchase of Patsy's home at 608 S. Kent in Winchester. To learn more about this, please visit: again.

I recently received the UK version of “Sentimentally Yours” LP. I wanted to share the liner notes from that LP with you all:"Sometimes a photograph can do it, but nothing erases time and distance and brings fond memories into life-clear focus as well as a familiar song. For those who aren’t ashamed of being a little sentimental; for those who now and then enjoy the warm experience of nostalgia, magic moments in your life. Here, in this exciting new album, you’ll find a collection of some of the most beautiful and everlastingly popular songs of our time... performed in the distinctively warm and irresistibly charming vocal style of Patsy Cline. Here are your favourite songs... Heartaches, That’s My Desire, ...all Sentimentally Yours from Patsy Cline.”I think this sums this album up pretty well. 12-17-02 I have talked with the publishers of “Remembering Patsy” photo book. They said it would be out in late January. Happy Holidays, Jimmy

Just a slight correction: The fan club is not behind this fan effort to bid at the auction. This is a purely 100% GRASSROOTS EFFORT under the CPC umbrella (to protect us), which makes it extra special! Just a buncha PatsyLovers sitting around navel gazing and saying, "Wait just a dadgum minute! We're not gonna sit around navel gazing anymore!!!" LOL It was Hilda's dream for this museum to become a reality, and we can't think of any better way to honor her than to see, AT THE VERY LEAST, the items that she made for her own daughter put into that museum. 99% of the top folks in Nashville who knew Patsy have been contacted via a letter-writing campaign we put together, headed by Vanessa and Theresa. The silence from Nashville is deafening, but perhaps someone will come through in the end. At this point, what they decide to do is up to them ~ I frankly do not care, because we fans now have the money to participate in this auction and do everything we can to bring something home to Winchester for Patsy and for Hilda!!! The folks who didn't care enough about Patsy to participate are going to be left behind in our dust, thank you very much.
P.S. There is still time for folks to donate via credit card at PayPal!:)

Dear Alan: I appreciate what you are saying very much... Perhaps you misunderstand what CPC is trying to do. They are trying to fulfill Mom Hensley's dream of having a museum. Nothing obtained by Celebrating Patsy Cline would be used as a trophy to impress others. Anything worked for and won by Patsy's loving fans is to go into a museum in Winchester, as Mom Hensley wanted in the first place -- for all to share, see, and pay tribute and respect. We are going against rich folks who may well do just as you fear -- hoard these treasures as trophies.

Sadly, family disputes and greed -- having nothing to do with Charlie or Julie -- have caused this auction in the first place. No one in the world who loves Patsy wants to see this happen, but it is due to greed that it is happening, and we are simply trying to salvage something good from that. I would love to see Julie have something of her mother's, it personally breaks my heart that she is in the position that she is in right now... It is my intention by calling folks together to donate, to bring some of Patsy's legend home, for ALL to enjoy, not to impress anyone. I would love to see Julie herself standing there, basking in the love of the fans who care enough to try to do something about the travesty of this auction. This is no time to be divided.

It is important that we all understand the intentions of CPC. It is by the fans, for the fans, for Patsy. I know that everyone is hurt and upset by this auction and for the fans to try to bring even just one thing home to Patsy's house in Winchester seems to be a way to begin to heal from the hurt of what is going on. I just wanted to clarify that, and hope that you understand. All the best wishes,

It disheartens me to think all of Ms. Hensleys memorabilia of Patsy will be auctioned off to the next bidder. To think all of the hard work the fan club has put into raising money for the museum... just so Hilda's "cherished" private collection can be scattered across the country. Hilda wanted to share these things with the fans... she saw the legions of new fans that sprouted every decade and knew they would continue long after her. Is there not any way around this for the family? Somebody call Trisha Yearwood, KD Lang or Sylvia... I bet they'd be more than willing to help out so Patsy's memories wont fetch top dollar. I urge anyone able to afford these items to please donate them back to Charlie or Julie... I'm willing to bet they'd greatly acknowledge you for it. Please don't buy these things and use them for trophies to impress others... share them with everybody... that's the way Patsy would have probably wanted it.

NINE DAYS AND COUNTING... There are 9 days left to donate to CPC for the auction. Please, take a second to donate thru Paypal. Time is dwindling, and while the holidays are here, can we all not spare ten bucks?? If everyone who reads this, takes 30 seconds to click on the paypal, and gives 10 bucks, imagine what we could do! Some may think that this is greedy to ask, but I bet we each spend 10 bucks without thinking, at the mall, or in a day's work, between lunch and snacks, hell, I know I do... The sad reality here in Patsyland is that things do take money, just like anything else in this old world does. Do you want to see a museum in Winchester? Do you want to have a place to pay respects to the Lady who has given us all so much?

Sure, everyone answers: "Why yes, of course!!" Well, how do you think it will come about?? Where will it come from? The answer is: US. We are not rich folks, but if we each just give a little, it adds up to so much. And, it's for her, the Lady that we come to places like this to celebrate, love and honor. Why is it so hard then to give? If Patsy were on a street corner in Winnie, singing, holding out her hat, would you not drop something in it? Sure ya would... Well, now is your chance...

I can't speak to the rich folks out there, or the Patsy impersonators who happily spend a ton of money to look and sound like Patsy, except to say, that if you really, truly love her, take the time to REALLY help her, and take a fraction of the bucks you might spend on buying something and lend a helping hand. What better way to pay tribute then to honor her, and her memory?? We have a special opportunity here, and more importantly, a respsonsibility. Patsy needs our help, and now is our chance. How many times have you sat and thought about how much joy her voice brings you, how much inspiration her courage and character gave you, and said to yourself, I just wish I could let her know how happy she makes me...

Well, here's your chance... Please, I beg y'all, take it, and take it now... Time is growing short, y'all, please, for Patsy...

Per, one more thing: For ALL you fans who wish to do something FOR Patsy... In return for ALL she has given you, I URGE you to help donate. She gave it ALL! Including her life, in the ACT of CHARITY for ANOTHER, and I think that warrants a gentle pointing out to... BUT for that fact... she would still be with us. Yet she had a heart that was huge and wide, even appearing at a hospital bed dead tired and exhausted when a child was ill, Patsy being her idol... she drove out of her way, asked her the song as the girl kept going in and out of coma, sat softly beside her on the bed, the child answered thinking it a dream, and Patsy gently coed to her, as the child slipped into her last slumber, that ever gentle slumber of night hearing the voice of an Angel on Earth. THAT is the LADY I wish to honor. In the smallest of sums if necessary. They add up! For every fan who wants to repay Patsy the Lady for giving them so much, this is their chance to give something back to Patsy.If you can't help, you just can't. If you COULD, or can... Think hard on the charachter of this Lady, and what years and years later, she is STILL giving to you, and new generations that have come after her. Just my two cents... She gives so much still... M. Michael

This is for all the fans, but particularly Per, Bill, Julie, Charlie and Randy.I can't imagine what must be developing behind the scenes with this auction. Bill, thank you for your effort, and all those working with you. I believe you will reach your target of aquisition. The word grieved and even crushed comes to mind when I think of this auction. W.I.N.C. or "Winnie" as some call it, (Winchester) is talking, let me tell you. The communities and people she touched, still remember Patsy, the Lady, quite fondly, though many have passed who knew her personally. And you're right, Julie - I too have had someone approach me and tell me THEY had an encounter with a Julie "Cline" - Patsy's SINGLE daughter, and when this happened, the person said back - "Nice to meet you, Miss 'CLINE'. Charlie DICK(!) would be interested to know you're HERE and not HOME. The Lady was only 30- this year..." so you see the dilemma. Some things you just have to shake your head at... But Per, as long as you're around, fans will have a place to converge where they feel they have touched a piece, or even left a piece of themselves behind for Patsy and her family. Just my feeling. We have her songs, for sure. Julie and Family... you are in my prayers, you will shine thru this I am quite sure, your entry was so moving, and humble about this, you just seem to rise again and again. I see a marked resemblance to Patsy in that. Nothing kept her down. That's it, I just needed to do this... I hope it is appropriate, and has a place in this time and Forum. Let them take what they can now, they can't really take her presence... or her voice... M. Birmingham (Someone contact Loretta - I am sure she knows, but maybe could act as a benafactor, purchasing items to put on loan to the Museum. This would not be the first time she has purchased or aquired items of great importance of Patsy's for her friendship and memory, she also still has items of crash, and she has her own Patsy Museum- just a thought).

Celebrating Patsy Cline, Inc. Establishes Acquisition Fund. Announces Intention To Bid In Upcoming Auction of Patsy Cline Costumes. On December 19, 2002, a collection of Stage Costumes once owned and worn by legendary recording artist Patsy Cline will be auctioned in Beverly Hills, California by the prestigious company, Profiles In History. Among the items up for bid are a Black Sequined Evening Gown (with matching Purse and Gloves) worn during Ms. Cline's history making 1962 appearance at the Mint Casino in Las Vegas, a Gold Dress with Black Lace overlay worn during a triumphant Grand Ole Opry benefit performance at New York's world famous Carnegie Hall in 1961, a pair of stage worn cowgirl boots, buckskin jacket, and a western styled vest and skirt combination. Several of these Costumes were hand-sewn by Patsy's mother, Mrs. Hilda Hensley. The Costumes are being offered for sale by the Hensley family, with all proceeds going toward the settlement of Mrs. Hensley's estate. Mrs. Hensley had kept the Costumes for many years, as it was her dream to establish a Museum in her daughter's memory. Patsy Cline fans from around the world now have the opportunity to help see that Mrs. Hensley's dream becomes a reality. Celebrating Patsy Cline, Inc., a non-profit organization based in Winchester, Virginia, is working toward the establishment of a museum in Patsy's childhood home. An Acquisitions Fund has been established to procure items for the museum. With the help and encouragement of some dedicated fans, Celebrating Patsy Cline, Inc. has registered to bid in the Patsy Cline/Hilda Hensley auction in the hope of acquiring at least one item for the museum. Donations for the Acquistion Fund are now being accepted. For more information on how you can contribute to the Fund, please visit this page on the Internet. All donations are tax-deductible, and will remain anonymous. Deadline for auction specific donations to be received is December 9, 2002. Celebrating Patsy Cline, Inc. thanks you for your support in its effort to preserve the legacy of Patsy Cline.

My 3 year old daughter is obsessed with Patsy Cline. She has everything that she has ever recored (that I could find) and even wants to change her name! lol This year, for Halloween, guess what she was? You are right, Patsy Cline. She sings all of her songs and even performs like she is really her. I just think that it is wonderful the she has chosen a role model to idol like her because in our world today it is very hard to find one that is worth the effort. Shannon in Tennessee

Just thought I'd leave a little message. I haven't written in the Fan Forum for so long, but my love for Patsy is as strong as its ever been. With auction date approaching, I try not to lose hope that one day a museum in Patsy's name will feature these beautiful articles of clothing. To me, it's more than clothing - it's Patsy. She's almost imbedded in them, made her mark so to speak. Per, thank you for the beautiful website you've maintained for so long. It was the first website I ever visited in PatsyLand and I remember going through each and every page and printing every photo to paste on my bedroom wall. Keep up the good work. :-)

Hi Per and all, just wanted to say that if you go to, you can put in Hilda's name and you can view her grave and leave virtual flowers or memorials. You can also do the same for Patsy. They also have Patsy's dad Sam Hensley on there. All you have to do is to enter the name, and the search will pull it up for you. Miss Hilda only has about 4 or 5 postings. This way we can say thank you to her for all of her love, blood, sweat and tears. It is truly a wonderful site, so if any of you can get a moment, please check it out. This goes to Julie: You are in my prayers now more than ever. My love to all of your family, may this difficult time soon pass. Most sincerely, Greg Mullins
