Dick and I have known Pat and Myles now for about 20 years! In fact, they were the first people to invite me to play tennis after we moved to Halifax Plantation. We had great fun playing doubles on Sunday mornings--me, Harry Thomas, Pat & Myles. Myles was usually my partner. And we went to dinner with them several times to celebrate Pat and Dick's shared birthday on November 7. Myles was always such a character. The photo Pat picked to go with his obituary is just perfect--it shows the twinkle in his eyes and the little smirk we all knew so well. What I liked best about Myles, however, was how much he adored Pat. We will all miss him so much!

When I think of my dad, I think of one of the most loving, gentle souls. He gave soft kisses and warm hugs. We spent a lot of time playing together when we were kids (sports mostly, since I was the only girl surrounded by brothers). He made me laugh with goofy accents, tapping his hand on the car dashboard to songs on the radio, and acting like Columbo (TV detective). He always had one more question (which was painful for his impatient kids). We spent every summer "down the Jersey shore." (Thank you Patty for tolerating those weeks!) He was always patient, caring and supportive. He lived a great life with his loving wife, Patty. Thank you so much Patty for taking such good care of dad all these years and especially the last several years. He is so lucky to have a love like you! Dad is resting in peace now and will be forever in my heart and mind. ~ Signed, his little princess ;-)

Dear Pat, I cannot tell you how sorry I am to hear of Myles passing. You have been the most devoted and caring wife I can ever imagine. I hope you find peace and solace in knowing that. My most vivid memory of Myles is passing him riding his bike while I was walking. He always seemed so happy to be outside. I also will never forget his cut off t-shirt he played tennis in when it was unbearably hot in the summer. Myles was a lovely man and I will be praying for Pat and all of his family. Please accept my deepest condolences. All my sympathy and love to you, Pat. -- Edie

Dear Pat,

Myles will always have a special place in our hearts for having known him. Eight years ago when Tom and I first met you and he, little did we know what close friends you would become.  I thought to myself, what a beautiful lady, and with such a nice guy.  They even play tennis too!  That began our friendship, and it didn’t take long to realize what a beautiful person on the inside you are too, Pat.  Your love and endearing devotion to Myles for forty-nine years was an inspiration to all your friends and neighbors.  In return, Myles knew he had to give it his all to the very end for his dear Patty.  He was a warrior, and will not be forgotten by his many friends and neighbors in our community.  Rest in Peace, Myles, and may his spirit help you carry on, dear Pat.

Our deepest sympathy,
Pat and Tom Kemper
