“Patti was the most understated STAR I’ve ever known. Her faith, wisdom and support will truly be missed as well as her love and friendship.” – Chris Paul
“Patti and I have worked together for almost 20 years and she was a friend, a daughter and a sister to me. It’s like I’ve lost a fourth sister. But I thank God that I was able to be with her and sing to her before she passed. She was loved and admired by many and will be truly missed.” -Patti LaBelle
“Patti Webster never gave up. No matter what she was facing in business or in her personal life, she had the kind of attitude that inspires everyone around her. It was never about her. It was always about how she could help everybody else. I’m deeply saddened by this loss. However, I’m comforted knowing Patti’s influence on myself and those she met was so powerful and so positive it changed all of our lives for the better. May she rest in peace.” – Kelly Rowland
