To the family of Pat Hosley
Words cannot adequately describe to you the love I feel for all of you. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Your husband, father, grandfather, Uncle, brother, and friend was a wonderful, kind, loving man who I will never forget. As a young girl growing up with the Hosley family... Mama Lori, Colleen, Danny, Jimmy, Steve, and Patty, Pat made me feel as if I was one of the family. He will be with us always, in spirit and in memory.
Love & Hugs to all
Sincerely, Joelle
