Sending Love, Hugs, & prayers to you all as you bid farewell for now to a most Loving, Awesome, Caring and inspirational Man?
He will be missed.
To you Pat, I have loved you both since my mid teens, and my creativity that has served me well in life was due to the time I spent with you a few times when I struggled at home as a teen.
Finding my way spiritually was made more clear to me from conversations with you & Dick during turbulent times in my youth. Those times left a mark that has been a blessing in my life, one that is always with me..
I know He is Face to Face with the LORD, & as I wrote that, my heart fluttered & filled with a joyful peace!
I pray that the knowledge that you will be together again, & worship the LORD together face to face with our LORD bring you peace.
I pray the LORD comfort you & give you strength as you go about each day.
Mom & Dad send their Love, and I know they wanted to be here. Call me if you need anything Pat.
Sending all my love to you Pat, to Rich and Jo and family & Cindi and Family, and all the rest of the family!
I wish I was well enough to be there in person! Just know, I am thinking of you all.
GOD BLESS YOU ALL
