Carl, I'm so very sorry to hear of Pat's passing. She was such a sweet person. I know she is with The Lord now and I know that has to be a comfort to you and your family. May God bring you comfort and peace as only He can. I'm sorry I won't be able to attend Pat's service but I need to be here taking care of my 94 year old mother. She had major surgery in August and needs me to be here with her. God bless you and your family.

We are so sorry and saddened to hear about the passing of Patricia but we know that she is with the Lord now and that we will soon be there with Him also, our Bessed Hope. We were talking about when we get back to Chambersburg getting together with both of you. Pat was such a kind, loving and beautiful lady inside and out. Carl, you and Pat go back a very long time and we really love both of you. I am sorry that we won't get to come to Pat's funeral to be there supporting you all. We pray for God's Comfort, Peace, and Strength for you and the family during this difficult time and in the day's to follow. Carl, Sabina and I are here for you please if we can help you, give us a call and we can talk and pray with you. Our Love and Prayer's are with you all. Ed & Sabina
