I am so sorry for the passing of "Pat". I knew him from the commissary and his dedication and faithful duty to his work. And after the commissary days I would see him and Mable often out in public and it was always pleasant to see them and talk with them. Always such a wonderful smile. May the Lord bless you.

Kathy and Jennifer, I am so sorry to hear about the passing of your dad and granddad . Many an hour , a group of us played bingo at different places and how many years did six of us play dominoes at each others homes. I miss those days. It seems I'm the only one of the six that is still on this earth. I have several of your mom's recipes that I use quite often. She was a wonderful cook. Both of your parents talked about you each time we got together. I am so sorry I didn't get over to see your dad in the last couple of years. I'd drive by their street and think, I've got to stop and see James. Always good intentions. I send my love and my prayers that you both will remember the good times and know that he, and your mom and grandma, loved you with all their hearts. I pray God sends his healing hand upon you both and you'll be left with lots of good memories.
