Thoughts and prayers going out to the family. Pat was such a sweet lady,
loved our country drives (as long as she stayed on the road) lol. She always
had a smile on her face, even though in the last while she couldn't breath she
still enjoyed our company. May you find the peace you need knowing she is
in Heaven and breathing and walking with Todd. We made trips to the
cemetery to visit Todd and just check on his grave, now she is with him.
Hugs to all.

Please accept our deepest condolences during this most difficult time. While
nothing will completely take away your grief, we have found the scripture at
Revelation 21:4 to be especially comforting where it promises that soon God,
by means of his kingdom that we pray for in the Lord's Prayer, will wipe out
every tear from our eyes, and death will be no more. May God comfort all of
you and give you peace in the days ahead. 2 Corinthians 1:3,4

I'm so sorry to hear of your loss. I have a lot of good memories of her driving
me places and her coming over for my son's birthday. And also for being
special to my daughters....

She was a special lady and will be missed!  We enjoyed worshiping with her
at the Phoenix assembly.
