Mrs. Pratt....When I told my mother (Hazel Mouton) of Mr. Pratt's transitioning my mom nearly jumped out of her skin in shock... Our family truly appreciate all of the care you and Mr. Pratt extended to her over the years. She spoke so highly of you two! We are so sorry for your loss and will be keeping you and your entire family in prayer...

Our deepest sympathy to Mrs. Joanne, Carl & Family as you grieve the loss of Mr. Pratt. Heaven was missing a special angel to praise the lord, spread joy & celebrate his life! -oh what a party it will be! So many memories we have shared with both of you, enjoying the singing, dancing, wedding reception & meeting in the meat dept. grocery isle, parking lot at Lowes & shopping or visiting at the house listening to stories of his son, but especially granddaughter Chloe! Mrs. Pratt, always cherish the love & memories as he watches over you from heaven.💕
