I am sorry for your loss of your mother. My mother , Nancy, thought the world of her. I have seen and spoken with your mother over the years and she was an extremely kind person. I appreciated her visiting my mother in her illness. I enjoyed seeing the photos of her and your family.
Sincerely,
Stephanie

I know I speak for all her friends at North Shore Alliance Church in N. Ft. Myers, FL, that we all have the fondest memories of Pat and Glenn. We were blessed to have them as a part of our snowbird community. Her love for Jesus and others was always inspiring. I am very fortunate to have known her. I know she is in a better place. I'm sad to hear of her passing, but I know I will see her again. Blessings and comfort to your family.

To Pat's family,
We always loved working with Pat during VBS, she helped as long as she was able to. She would look for things at garage sales for us for the children to use for crafts or we might need in the kitchen. Pat would look for clothes or shoes for some of the little ones that might be in need. She was quick to thank us for what we did and always had a smile and a kind word. I know she loved the time she spent in Florida and missed going. when we are in Florida next month, we will think of her. I know she is rejoicing today in heaven and talking to all of her loved ones and friends that have went on before. Mike and Penny Strawser
