Pat, I am so sorry that she has been taken away from you, even though we think we are prepared for this, it is never the same when it happens for real. God has her now, giving her comfort and love until you see her again. You are such a strong person, but please take time to grieve! I will keep your family in my prayers! Love, Sandy Burgess

Pat, I am very sorry for the loss of your mom. I looked through the album of family pictures posted and I thought that it is a powerful tribute to what she accomplished on this side of eternity. She and your father shaped the lives of her children and the success you all have achieved is a direct reflection of their efforts. She will be remembered with love by all who knew her and I am sure you will each share memories that will sustain you through the rest of your lives.
