We, like so many others. are going to miss our sweet Ms. Pat. She always had a smile on her face & a song in her heart. Many times she would be humming a tune. She was very humble & gave GODLY advice & encouragement to so many! She truly was a virtuous woman as so beautifully written in Proverbs 31:10-31. She blessed our family so much. There will certainly be a huge void without her here on Earth. However, she got the best CHRISTMAS gift anyone could hope for, home with JESUS in Heaven! We kept praying for a miracle in her life. GOD’S will was to bring her to HIS home. We love you Ms. Pat! Bro. Glenn & family- we love you. May GOD give you comfort, grace, & strength as only HE can do. Continual prayers for all of you.
Pat was such a loving, special Christ honoring witness for the Lord.
Our hearts go out to you and we pray for strength and comfort for all the days ahead. In Christ ‘s love, Bruce, Rhonda & Carrie
Love to you all,
Jim,Tammy,Nicholas and Samantha Barrett
