Sandy, this is your cousin Debbie Saxion. I just found out and I think you should call Gainsville Highway Patrol for some answers. Is this man who killed Patty going to be punished or prosecuted. Was he sober or drunk? This is the crap that happened when Dennis was killed. I am so sorry for what you are feeling at this time. I’m on messenger & facebook under Debbie or Debra Burnside
