Rethinking about all the good times we had together – especially in Europe. I will never forget the sidewalk art we did in Rome and the fun we had there.

Dear Carol,
I was very sorry for your loss. I know you will miss him dearly as well as cherish the many memories. It is times like these that we need comfort and support, and I look to God’s Word for both. I find scriptures such as 2Corinthians 1:3,4 which shows how the God of all comfort will give you the courage and the strength to cope. Psalms 55:22 assures us of God’s love by encouraging us to throw all of our burdens on him. Acts 24:15 tells us that soon Jesus will resurrect our dear loved ones, and finally Revelation 21:4 says that soon “Death will be no more”.
I hope these scriptures help you as they have for me. My thoughts and prayers will be with you in this most difficult time.

Susan Chapler Patterson says:

I have such fond memories of Pat as a child when we would visit Iowa and I am deeply saddened by his death.Please accept my deepest sympathies. Peace and grace be with all of you. Psalm 116:15″ Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of his saints.”

E P Sucro says:

To my cousins Florita and John sorry to hear about the loss of Patrick, my sympathies go out to you and the rest of the boys. I just heard it thru cousin Violeta, we didn’t get to know him but by reading his obituary he was good well like human being, too bad we didn’t connect back then.
