Nathan and Family,
Sincere condolences to all of you in the passing of Pat. She will always be remembered by her church family as a sweet, kind and gentle sole. I have never seen anyone move to the next life with such grace and dignity. May God give you that peace that passes all understanding.

I am so sorry to learn of Pat's homegoing, but I am so glad that she could make her own decision to enter Heaven. That must have been a joyous occasion for her and makes me a little envious. I know each of you will miss her greatly but just remember that she has escaped this terrible world we are living in. May the love of God surround you now and in the coming days as you transition thru her passing.
