Mr. Charles and family, You are in my thoughts and prayers. Ms. Pat was a dear friend to me when I attended church with her and after I changed churches. She was always there for me and my family when we needed a helping hand. A couple of months ago she came to see me in the hospital and brought me the most beautiful roses out of her rose garden. She came back to see me again and we had a nice long talk. She will be greatly missed in the community, in church, and mostly by all of her family. Just know that Jesus is your source of strenght through this. We love your family and if there is anything we can do please let us know.
