We will miss GGMa Pat. She was a blessing to us and always so supportive of us. I'm thankful we know she is with Jesus now, free from pain. And we will see her again...sooner than later. Jesus is coming soon. Praying God will comfort our hearts with sweet memories we have of her until then. Love and peace to all.
