So sorry that I missed the funeral. Pat had one of the kindest spirits I have had the honour to know. The last time I saw her at Sobeys she would have been around 89 but she is always young and smiling in my memory. You know the sly smile and chuckle. Jesus is lucky
peace and comfort

WOW to have a mother and mate that many years has been a blessing to each one of you. Rejoice that this is such a short period of time before each one of you will be forever enjoying fellowship again.

It is that knowing that will help the loss which is and will be evident within each one of your lives. I do pray for God's peace to be you all at this transition time.

Sincere Sympathy

My sincere sympathy to you all; I have many happy memories of conversations with Pat in the good old days at TVL. She was so warm and caring; you were lucky to have had her as your Mother, and Grandmother.
