Stories from 2001
"Hello All! What an interesting web-site! My name is Lynn Mari. I am 32
years young and I've always challenged anybody who sais that they're
Patsy's biggest fan. Of course... it's all in good fun. I just think that
Patsy is higher on the totem pole than Elvis... truth be known.
Clearly... she was sent to this world to move millions of Americans and
fans, the world over. Her legacy will live on long after we're all gone
and I so pray that generations to come will keep it alive. My children
love Patsy... My daughter is only 11 years old, and I'll tell ya, she can
bellow a Patsy tune that puts chills down my spine. Here's the
incredible part... her friends love to listen to the songs she sings and
they really don't understand that they're listening to 'Good old
fashioned Country Music'. But one day, they'll come to know that Patsy's
music is by far the very best. There isn't a singer out there who can
hold a candle to Patsy... I'm sure I speak for all when I say that Patsy
was and still is... the very best. Thank you for allowing us to express
our heart-felt feelings about Patsy (Virgina) Cline. Have a great day,
and keep Patsy's music the best out there!"

"My name is Mandy Murphy. I am 25 years old. I have been a Patsy Cline
fan since I was about 10. I first heard of Patsy Cline when I saw the
'Sweet Dreams' movie. I taped her songs from the video and sang them
constantly. I always wanted to be just like her. (Unfortunately I can't
carry a tune!) I went to the Country Music Hall Of Fame for the first
time and cried when I saw some of her belongings actually there. My
husband makes fun of me because I have pictures of her hanging all over
the house. More than our family. I love your site. I had no idea that so
many poeple love her as much as I do. I thought I was the only one!!
It's wonderful to see that she really does live on. She lives in all

"My name is Courtney Morgan, and I have my grandpa to thank for introducing
me to Patsy Cline. He loved her, loved that she could sing right along with
an orchestra, by herself, or with a band. I think I was about 6 the first time
I heard of Patsy Cline, and my grandpa ordered two tapes from television and
gave them to me. I remember thinking 'Grandpa, why would I like this music?'
And, because I was so young, I didn't appreciate her for a long time (too bad
for me). But by the time I was about 12 and helping out around the house a lot,
and listening to music, I realized that Patsy was something else. So, while I
don't have my grandpa with me anymore, I have the gift of Patsy that he gave
me. I'm all of 25 now, and can recognize a Patsy Cline song in the background
of a movie, commercial, or a crowded store--there isn't a voice like hers. I've
always said that if I was stranded on a desert island and could take one CD
with me, it would be The Patsy Cline Story. Anyway, thanks for letting me share
my love of Patsy with ya'all!"

"I'm 14 years old, and I live in England. All my life have I known Patsy's
music, and I love every last song of hers. Patsy's voice is spectacular, in
fact it's undescribable to me, and anybody that has any music sence will say
the same. If I'm ever getting ready to go to a club, just chilling in my room,
or if I'm upset, I always play Patsy's songs as does my mum, I find her music is the
kind of music u can listen to at any time, in fact I'm listening to 'The Patsy
Cline Collection' CD 4 track number 2 'Your kinda love' right now, and I have
been listening to her music all day. Don't get me wrong, I'm a typical teenager
that likes all the upto date music and I probably own every upto date CD/Tape,
but I can't resist listening to Patsy considering her music is not like others.
When you're at my house there's Patsy's music played in both sections of the
house. Upstairs I'm listening to her music and downstairs my mum will be
listening to her music also. I know all the words to all her songs and as
does my mum."

"I was born in the 60's and my parents were from Eagle Lake, Maine, which
is still country!! We listened to Roy Clark, He Haw, George Jones and
many other greats. Listening to Patsy is a lot like listening to Janice
Joplin, their voices are so unique, soul inspiring and riveting that it
lives through the ages! Many of her songs still gives me the chills when I
hear her music. I still have 8 tracks of her music!!! Keep up the great work
with the site."

"I am from northern Wisconsin, and my name is Leonard Isaksson. I heard
Patsy Cline's songs in the 60's but I cannot say which one I first
heard. My sister likes her music. I commented on how I liked the song
played when Ross Perot had his 'convention' when he ran for President,
and he danced with his wife as Patsy's song 'Crazy' played. This
stimulated me to listen to more of her when I had the chance. I
normally listen to classical music, but I like many other musics, also.
For a time I worked with an evangelist who had formerly been working
with Red Foley on the Ozark Jubilee. That exposed me more to country
music, but it is not the same to hear her songs by another, although
some do very well. My favourite voice is a soprano named Elisabeth
Schwarzkopf, but I also like much to hear Patsy Cline. There is
something haunting about her voice, and the heart which I should think
lies behind it. Thanks for the site."

"My name is Caroline Williams and I live in Australia. I first fell for Patsy's
music about 5 years ago. I was having trouble sleeping and used to watch a lot
of late night television. A sci-fi series called 'Space - Above and Beyond' was
my favourite at the time, and one episode featured a Patsy song called 'Never
No More'. At the time the song just reached out to me and made me feel better
about everything. I have been collecting Patsy's music ever since then, along
with many other country artists. Patsy is my favourite, though."

"I'm Nell Patterson. I'll be 45 all too soon. I am the youngest sibling in a
family that loves music. Although I'd heard of Patsy Cline all my life, I could
not tie her to her songs, or vice versa, and knew only vaguely about her. A few
years ago, as I sat with some family members at my niece's wedding reception,
I asked if the record the disc jockey was playing was by Patsy Cline. My eldest
sister, very musical as all my siblings are, looking almost hurt, said 'No,
that isn't Patsy Cline' and just shook her head with pity. The others seemed to
get a look in their eyes, too, not of pity but of thinking of something very
good. She named and crooned a little of some Patsy Cline songs and said 'THAT's
Patsy Cline.' I decided right then I needed to have a Patsy tape. I bought 'The
Legendary Patsy Cline' next time I was in a store because I saw it had 'Walking
After Midnight' on it, one of my early-life favorites even though I can't
remember how I actually knew it in my childhood. I didn't know any other songs
on the tape when I bought it, but I do now! I soon had her greatest hits tape,
and stay on the lookout for more. What she could do! Hers is among my
most-played music, I stop whatever I'm doing if I see something about her on
TV, I laud her to everyone... She was the best ever. I'm thankful God gave her
to this earth, and I'm thankful for recordings and pictures!"

"Hi, my name is Tammy Edwards and I live in Virginia. I grew up in Middleburg,
Virginia, about 45 minutes from Winchester. I didn't know much about Patsy
growing up, even though Winchester was kind of the hang out when I was young.
As the area I grew up in became over populated, all of my family (excluding
myself) have moved to Clarke County (Berryville, Virginia, where Patsy met
Charlie) or to the Winchester area. I first realized there was a Patsy Cline
when the movie 'Sweet Dreams' came out. My father told me stories of when he
was younger and they used to frequent the places Patsy often sang. Of course
there's no denying that voice is beautiful and there is no voice like hers and
probably never will be. I'm planning to be married in Winchester in November at
the Valley Wedding Chapel. Just around the block from where Patsy & and her
mother lived. Thanks!"

"Hi, my name is C. J. Harding and I have been a Patsy fan since I was born.
My mother was listening while I was bakin' in the oven. In fact, maybe it
was the background music of when I was created. Both my parents loved Patsy
and would dance to her long into the night. I never got to meet Patsy, but
meeting Elvis when I was eight was pretty tops. After raising my kids, I
became involved in the music business and put a female band together to sing
country and my originals. People kept telling me I sounded like Patsy and
would request more of her songs. So, I decided I would put together a show
dedicated to Patsy Cline. I've been doing the show for six years and have
performed in many places all over the country. But the best place of all was
when I was invited to perform for New Year's Eve in Winchester, VA. That was
such an honor! That would have been enough but I was ask back two more times.
I met so many wonderful people that knew Patsy. I listened for hours and many
of those times were spent in Gaunt's drugstore where Patsy used to work.
I love Winchester. It's the only place that I perform that gives me goose
bumps. I make my costumes to be replicas of Patsy's. One of them, (the red one)
is on display in Memphis at the Rock & Soul Museum along with Cindy Hazen
and Mike Freemans' 'Love Always, Patsy' (collection of letters) and will be
until the end of the year. The uncanny thing is, that my show is called
'A Tribute to Patsy Cline'. I have a website called
cjharding.com with all kinds of info on
it. I would love to hear from other ladies who perform Patsy. Keep the spirit
alive, y'all! Musically yours,"

"My name is Paul Caputo. I have been a Patsy Cline fan for decades. I recently
heard a wonderful narrative on the song 'Crazy' on the NPR radio show 'All
Things Considered'. I encourage all of Patsy's fans to give a listen to this
informative discussion of the song 'Crazy'. The site can be found
The audio narrative provides some great background information on this great
number one jukebox single of all time. The song 'Crazy' by Patsy Cline now
has a special meaning to me. The day my Mom passed away, the song 'Crazy' was
playing on my car radio as I drove home from the hospital where she had just
died. I can never hear that song now without thinking about my Mom. I wonder
how many of Patsy's fans know that she recorded the vocal part of the song in
a single take in the studio? On the NPR radio show, Kathy Mattea talks about
Patsy walking into that studio in the summer of 1961 and making magic with the

"My name is Tiffany Kananowitz and I first discovered Patsy Cline at a dollar
theatre when I was young. I snuck in to see a movie called 'Sweet Dreams'. I
had no idea it was a true story film. However, I was fascinated by her voice.
I have been a fan ever since and will always be one."

"Hello, my name is Mary Gravelle, I am 20 years old and I know nowadays it
seems as if young kids don't appreciate the legends, but lemme tell u what,
I sure do. I can sing exactly like Patsy Cline, so much like her it even scares
me sometimes. My mother has walked in the room many of times and told me she
thought it was the radio playing or a tape or something, but it's me, my momma
says I must have a lil of Patsy's spirit in me cus God gave me the gift to
sing like the angel Patsy Cline. That's my story, thank you very much for
providing fans like me with this website, I luv it!"

"Wow! Was I surprised when my 15 year old son David asked me to come and listen
to a CD he was listing to at the local Walmart store in Salem, Misssouri. I
listened to this voice that sounded like an old friend that I had lost
somewhere in my life. As I listened to this sweet heaven voice I asked my son
'Who is this?' He said someone named 'Patsy Cline'. As I listened to her voice,
old feelings of a warm cozy family came rushing inside and I relized this voice
was the voice I use to wake up to and go to sleep to at night when I was a
My father, George Beal, was a huge fan of Patsy Cline and Kitty Wells. I
remember when I was young I would watch my mother, Mary and Dad, dance to her
songs, I could watch them dance for hours to her songs. When my dad was in a
good mood he would sing her songs, pick me up and swing me around. Patsy Cline
was a part of our family that I had fogotten as I went out on my own into the
world to make my own family.
I stood there in Walmarts for hours going through all them tapes, buying all
the Patsy Cline CDs I could find. I wanted to bring a old friend home again.
Now Patsy is in my home for my children to listen to. Friends again,"

"Hello, my name is Minden Sprenger and I am 23 years old. The first memory I
have when I think of Patsy Cline, is when I was just a little girl. My father
took a record out of its case, leaned over to me as I was sitting on a chair,
and said 'Honey, do you want to hear the most beautiful voice you'll ever
hear?' I nodded my head, and he put the record on the player. I don't recall
the first song I heard, but I do remember sitting in our downstairs basement
for hours listening to that record over and over again. I was totally and
completely in love with the mystery voice I heard on the record player. Later
on, when it was time for dinner, my father came back downstairs, looked at me
with a smile, and said, 'Do you know who that is?' I nodded my head 'no' with
a little smile on my face. All he said was, 'That's Patsy Cline, sweetie...
that's Patsy Cline.'
From that day on, I have always loved her music, I've been
so interested in her life, her music, etc. I had the honor to get in touch with
Mr. Charlie Dick, her husband, and speak with him on the phone for quite some
time. He was very kind, and very friendly. He made speaking with him so
laid-back, like we've known each other for years. We spoke about many things,
including my 2 year old little girl who is a HUGE Patsy fan. She sings 'Crazy',
'Sweet Dreams', and her favorite, 'Walkin' After Midnight' WORD FOR WORD. I
have it on tape, so she can look back and see what a little singer she was at 2
years. Anyway, I want to thank you for having such wonderful sites and pix to
observe about Patsy. I'm sure she's director of God's great choir, and she's
looking down on us with her beautiful smile. What a beautiful person, and a
beautiful voice, to be taken away so soon... You will forever be in our hearts,
and the music will live on forever."

"My name is Robbie Jerrell. You can say that I became a fan of Patsy Cline
when I was ten years old. All due to an album my mother had given to me too
play on my small record player, it was an album that was called 'The
Country Hall Of Fame'. Songs of different country greats were on this album;
Roy Acuff, Kitty Wells, Buck Owens etc, and one song I played over and over
was a small cut of 'I fall to pieces'. The singer was Patsy Cline. I loved
the sound of her voice! Later my parents took my sister and me on a trip
to the Grand Ole Opry. This was when it was still at The Ryman, the place
was sold out, but one of the people who worked the Opry told my parents
that my sister and I could sit in the window (remember, the Ryman wasn't air
condtioned back in the early '70s), the whole time I was counting on seeing
this woman named Patsy Cline. It was then that my dad told me I couldn't,
because she had passed away years ago. I was sad, but as time passed I've read
Loretta Lynn's book, and seen 'Coal Miner's Daughter', and learned more of
Patsy, and still became a larger fan... Beside Patsy and Loretta, the other
best female country singer is Dottie West. I find it strange that how she and
Patsy were born months apart, and how Patsy was killed going home from a
show, and Dottie was going to a show when the car crash happened, and that she
[Dottie] was laid to rest around Patsy's birthday!!! Country music's best
women!!! And just a quick note on Dottie West... She was the first woman
in country music to win a Grammy. I feel that the Hall of Fame has overlooked
her in the past ten years, since her death. Dottie should be honored with her
best friend Patsy Cline in the new Hall of Fame..."
Robbie Jerrell, May 29, 2001.
"My name is Zola Lee. I had the honor, when I was approximately 8-9 years of
age, of seeing Patsy Cline perform one of her last concerts in Louisville,
Kentucky at Freedom Hall. She appeared in person with Jimmy Dean and Tex
Ritter. They had these dancers back then with the 'can cans' under their
dresses. She was the last to perform. She had on a solid white dress, and a
full can can underneath it. The lights had colors of blue and pink, and I
remember how truly beautiful she looked, and how beautiful she sang. She
received a standing ovation. The crowd was wild. I remember approximately two
weeks later, my mother and father told me she had been killed in a plane crash.
I was so sad. The years have passed and I am 48 years old now. I still have
Patsy's music to soothe me. In my mind I can still see her singing 'I Fall To
Pieces'. She sang that one on stage beautifully. I watched 'Sweet Dreams' (the
movie) tonight, and I was talking with my husband, and thinking about how short
of time she had to live the last time I saw her. Thank you, for listening. I
hope this letter and the memory of this concert helps her still devoted fans
who have never seen her really sing. Sincerely, Mrs. Dale Lee. PS. She also
wore real red lipstick that night. Thank you."
Zola Lee, May 16, 2001.
"I was born in Oct. 1958. I didn't attend kindergarten back then, and my
mother was a house wife, like all the other mothers back in those days.
My mother was doing the daily routine of cooking and washing laundry the
day that Patsy died. I was in the living room playing the radio. Back in
those days you only had one radio per household, and one black and white
TV, with rabbit ears, and everyone used the same household hair brush, and
one tooth past tube for the whole family, a very intimate, family situation.
I was in the living room floor, of our small two bedroom home, listening to
the radio. One of my favorite songs was interrupted, and the DJ came on the
air and said, 'The Late Great Patsy Cline is dead, she died in a plane crash
this morning, again I repeat, Patsy Cline is dead, the news was just delivered
to me.' The DJ immediately started playing a slow Patsy Cline song, and I
believe it was either 'Crazy' or 'Sweet Dreams'.
I immediately jumped up and ran into the kitchen, where my mother was busy
with her chores. I ran up to her, and I said, 'Mommy, Patsy Cline is dead, I
just heard it on the radio.' My 25 year old mother, in disbelief, was looking
at me, and had heard so many tall tales of a 5 year old, responded... 'Honey
don't be saying things like that, especially if it isn't true.' I said to my
Mom, 'Come on and listen to the radio.' Well, my mother took the radio out of
the living room, and put it in the kitchen, and there she continued her chores.
She turned the volume up loud enough that I would still be entertained at a
short distance, and we could still hear the music over the pots boiling, and
the washing machine churning. After the Patsy Cline song finished playing, the
DJ came back on the air, and announced again, the Late Great Patsy Cline was
killed in a plane crash early this morning... My mother looked at me and said,
'Well, you were right.' She had a very surprised, and sad looked on her face,
that to this day I will never forget...
I have the Patsy Cline collection of hits on about six CD's. I still love her
music today. I feel, there will never be another Patsy Cline voice, and she is
the greatest of all the female singers, pop or country. My second choice would
be Dottie West, and I lover her song, 'Here Comes My Baby Back Again'. The two
greatest singers in the world, Patsy, and Dottie, both born about one month
apart in 1932. What a great year! What a tragic loss of both lives. Thanks for
sharing my story."

"My name is Linda Howard Sharp, I remember walking along the highway in St.
Regis, Montana with my pal Chrissy. The big rigs roaring by, with us raising
our arms high and pulling down, so they would toot their horns for us. Then
from Tilly's Bar down across the road would come the sweet strong voice of
Patsy Cline, and we would stop and listen. When we arrived at Chrissy's home,
her mother Caroline would be ironing and playing Patsy's records, so we would
have a cool drink and listened again. We were eight years old and totally in
love with Patsy Cline. Through the years Patsy's been there for me at every
turn in the road, always singing the right song for my mood. No star has ever
shone brighter than Patsy's. I used to go Walking After Midnight to see if she
was. She always was, and I could hear that lonesome tune on the wind."
Linda Howard Sharp, Apr 12, 2001.
"My name is Bridget Lynn Hensley Hoerner, Patsy Cline is a distant cousin
of mine through my grandfather's side of the family. His great grandfather's
name is Benjamin Hensley, and somehow or another, I cannot remember how my
grandfather explained it, but Patsy is related to Benjamin Hensley somehow in
a way that makes her our distant cousin. Whether I am related or not, I have
to say that Patsy had a remarkable voice, I admire her for that. It is sad that
she had to pass on at such a young age. I've always heard Patsy's music growing
up and how could I not love her!!"
Bridget Lynn Hensley Hoerner, Mar 25, 2001.
"My name is Lea Newton and I'm 19 years old. It's odd how I became a fan of
Patsy Cline. As you see, I am VERY young. Patsy had been passed on 18 years
before I was ever born, you see. And also that fact that I am from New York
City :-) As a child, my mother LOVED Patsy and listened to her constantly,
even tho no one in my family is from the country. I just grew to love her voice
and her wholesome songs. And I ended up marrying a good ol' Kentucky boy :-)
We both enjoy listening to Patsy's amazing voice."
Lea Newton, Mar 15, 2001.
"My name is Ryan Payne, and I am 31 years old. I am a very late bloomer as far
as becoming a fan goes, and I wish I had heard her music a lot sooner! The
first time I actually stopped and listened was when a certain TV show was on --
the one where people try to sing and impersonate a singer or band in a contest
-- the name escapes me. A woman was impersonating Patsy Cline and sang 'Crazy'.
She did so well and looked so much like her it was unreal! That was when I fell
in love with that song and with Patsy Cline's music. I wanted more! I heard a
co-worker talking about her favorite song of Patsy's called 'Walking After
Midnight'. My curiosity was finally piqued and I went to a local music and book
store where I purchased an album of hers. The rest is history -- I listen to it
all the time! My wife and I like to sing 'Crazy' and 'Walking After Midnight'
when it comes on, and even my two-year-old gets in the act and 'sings' along. I
wasn't much of a country fan growing up, but now I wish I had been. I sure
missed out on the joy of Patsy Cline growing up. But it's never too late to
become a fan. What a voice she has! The heavenly choirs above are definitely
graced with the voice that has joined theirs!!!"
Ryan Payne, Mar 8, 2001.
"My name is Barbara and I fell in love with Patsy Cline a couple of years ago
when I happened to be flipping through the cable stations and came across this
movie ('Sweet Dreams', I think), and the actress that was portraying her was
lip-singing (though she did a good job) the song 'Crazy'. That was the most
beautiful sound I have ever heard come out of a person's mouth. It sounded like
something an angel would sing. It was so perfectly balanced, crystal clear. It
was mesmerizing. I'm Black and was raised in the country and was exposed to
some country music and though I'm not a devoted fan of country music I listen
to it from time to time and have a few favorites. But after catching the end of
this movie I couldn't wait until it played again. I watched every rerun. No
matter what song she sang, it just made me want more and more everytime. And,
when she sung 'Crazy' I hung on every note thinking perhaps I missed a note --
trying to find some imperfection. But no, there was no mistake -- that voice
was perfect! I even find myself from time to time dropping in on a country bar
or bowling alley just to put a dollar in the jukebox to hear that magical
voice. What a blessed voice she had!"
Barbara Burroughs, Mar 5, 2001.
"I have been a Patsy Cline fan for 12 years... She is the greatest singer of
all times... 'Sweet Dreams' is a great movie about her life and I have enjoyed
it hundreds of times... I will be stopping at Camden, TN this year to visit the
crash site and I hope to get to Virginia soon to see her hometown and grave...
Her legend and music will live forever... She has been an inspiration to so
many young singers... She must be smiling down at all of them from up
Robbie Park, Feb 25, 2001.
"I became a fan of Patsy's when I first watched the movie 'Sweet Dreams' years
ago. I always thought that I was alot like her, and to my surprise I just
recently found out that we were born on the exact same day, September 8th. The
site, by the way, is excellent. Thanks for recognizing a spectacular

"I must have been about 8 or 9 years old when I first heard a Patsy Cline song.
It was 'Walking After Midnight'. I've loved her ever since then. I'm 51 years
old now and I still love her. My family is a musical family and I've always
sang. I've always sang Patsy's songs and I've always tried to sing as much like
her as possible. Although, no one could ever do that. I can't explain why, but
I've always felt a sort of kinship with her. She was then and always will be a
very special lady."
Sherry Wanzer, Feb 15, 2001.
"I am a late bloomer Patsy fan. Born in 1958, I missed out on her rise to
fame, but have come to completely adore her beautiful, sultry voice. The
first time I really listened to a Patsy song was while sitting my lonely
fanny on a tavern bar stool. Feeling crummy and alone, depressed and sorry
for myself, I was dumbstruck by what was playing on the jukebox. Patsy's
clear voice came to me through the smoke-filled room like an arrow piercing
my heart. Her magnificent voice and the words she sung dulled everything else
around me. I didn't hear the other patrons, the clang of beer mugs, nor the
joking laughter--all were muddled as I listened to her sing from her soul.
No one will ever match Patsy Cline. She was an angel on earth as she now is
in heaven. God bless you, Patsy Cline."
Christine Gould, Feb 15, 2001.
"My name is Saffaa Mohiuddink. I am 24 years old. The first time I heard
Patsy Cline's music was when I was 17 years old, when I first came into this
country. I am from Bogota, Colombia, South America. I was born Nov 10, 1976.
When I moved to America from South America I was living with my mother and
my step father. They both were from Argentina, South America, and he loved
Patsy Cline, and one day I was looking into his CDs. I ran upon Patsy Cline
so I played the CD. The first thing I told myself was 'who is this?' This
woman have the most beautiful voice I have ever heard. I never liked country
music until I heard Patsy Cline's voice. I love all of her music. 'Crazy for
you' was my favorite. I still don't like country music, but Patsy Cline. Her
music just touch my heart, I love how she sings. No other country singer can
touch Patsy Cline. I know she died but still no one can touch my heart like
she does. I wish I was born at the time she was with us on earth, before she
died in the plane. I'd be the first woman to be at her feet looking at her
singing her lights out. Patsy Cline is the best country singer of all times.
Since she is no longer living, keep her music a live, like I do. I always
listen to her music when I am down or upset about something. I just pop in her
CD and just sit there and listen to her most beauitful voice and after the CD
is over, I feel so much better about myself. Thank you, Patsy Cline, for making
me happy just listening to your music! I wish I could tell you in person, but
I can't... That's all I have to say."
Saffaa Mohiuddink, Feb 3, 2001.
"The moment I heard her voice I fell in love with her... My late wife and I
danced to her music... My children and grand children sing and play her
music. What a great gift the Lord has given us in her voice and memories
that are alive today in the hearts of her fans... I'm thankful that my life
was enriched by her voice and her memory."

"My name is Robert Baxter (Bob). I lived at 400 Halls Lane, now Old Hickory
Blvd. in Madison, Tennessee. When I was a nine year old kid, sitting on the
front porch of our home, I witnessed the car wreck. It happened just the way
it was told on your web page. I remember yelling to my grand mother there
was a wreck. My uncle, Calvin Devine, pulled Patsy from the hood of the car
and cut his arm doing it. I also remember a little boy in the other car. He
was also hurt real bad, I beleive he died. I can remember lawyers and
police coming to our house a to get a statement from me, since I was the
only eye witness to the accident. My father, Roy Baxter, was the janitor
at Madison High School, and we lived in the house beside the school. It
happened right in front of our driveway, about 150 feet from where I was
sitting. The roads were wet, but it wasn't raining at the time of the
accident. I have always been a fan of Patsy Cline and will always have
this memory of her being hurt so bad in my mind. I thought I would share
this story with you. Thank You."

"I first heard Patsy Cline in early 1960s in a little bar in Northern
California when the bartender asked me to dance and then played 'I Fall to
Pieces' on the jukebox. That song became our song and we were married two
years later. I will always remember Patsy Cline and love to hear her sing
all these many years later. LeAnn Rimes does a wonderful rendition of
her songs, but there will never be another Patsy Cline. I have always
wondered, too, what ever became of her children and Charlie Dick. Someday
I would like to hear a really true story about them."
