Kathy and family -
I was very sad to learn of Pat's passing. Living in Florida, I seldom had seen Pat, but have fond memories of him during my childhood. Our mothers were sisters, which seemed to mandate our families would get together for summer vacations in various locals from Virginia to North Carolina and Ohio. On one such occasion in Sanford, N,C., Pat convinced me to eat a sweet pepper, which turned out not to be. My mouth is still burning more than 50 years later. But I guess that's what being cousins was and still is all about. I can remember when Pat came to visit before he left for Vietnam. There was a lot of anxiousness and uncertainty, but Pat survived and went on to have a wonderful wife and family. Time certainly has passed, but as I'm thinking of Pat, I know Godspeed will deliver him safely.

Kathy, Becky, Justin and family:
Sorry to hear about Pat, he would stop at the house from time to time and see if I was okay, even when he wasn't feeling well himself. Pat was a very kind and considerate person. My thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time.

Dear Kathy, Justin and Becky,
I am so very sorry for the loss of your husband and father. Praise God he isn't lost. You know where he is and you will see him again. May your special memories bring you a measure of comfort as you grieve. I pray the Lord will give you a peace that passeth understanding and that you will find His grace is sufficient.
I considered coming up for the funeral, but I decided to wait till a later time when I would have opportunity to visit with you, Kathy. You are in my heart and in my prayers. Know that I love you dearly.
