Messages for the Family

  1. Brandon says:
    Thank you Mrs. Pat for showing us what it truly means to be a christian woman, wife, mother and friend. I cannot say thank you enough for what you and Bro. Glenn did for my family. Words will never be able to explain what you mean to so many people and how you helped them change their lives and come to know the Lord. Thank you for all the things we know you did and even the things we didn’t know that you did. Things have been rough lately we know but now rest a bit and we will see you afterwhile. We love you
  2. Dana Mikiska says:
    So sorry for your loss. Thoughts and prayers are with the family at this trying time.
  3. John and Bobby Zlou Williams says:
    We want to extend our sympathy to Bro. Glen and the girls and family. Pat was always fun to visit with and always made us feel welcomed when we visited our daughter, Libby Thomas. Her legacy will live on through her ministries.
  4. John McKinney, Sr says:
    Sherian and Family, I am saddened to hear of your loss and heaven’s gain. While I did not know Pat specifically, I had the pleasure of working with Sherian for many years at LifeWay. Most of the time, daughters are a reflection of the mother. Knowing the kindness, willingness to help others and the humor that Sherian has – I believe we can attribute that to a wonderful and caring mother. May God bless your family and provide peace and comfort during this time.
  5. Felicia Wood says:
    Mrs. Pat always called each of her Sunday School class members either a lady bug or a butterfly. She always taught us how to be Godly women. I will never forget her witty saying, amazing laughs, and how much she has counciled me through many times such as this and through sickness. To: Bro. Glenn and Family : I am deeply sorry for your loss. If you should need anything or just to talk or shoulder to cry on. I am only one phone call away. (615)335-4230.

    Bro. Glenn. Sherian, Angie, Bryce, Sophie & all the rest of your family
    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.
