To Patricia's Family and friends: It will be wonderful time Almighty God fulfills his word found at Revelation chap 21 verse 4-5. There he say he will remove all "sickness, death and pain." A promise he will bring about when his Kingdom rules this earth as it does heaven. This we can be sure he will do because Titus chap 1 verse says "God can't lie." I'll pray for your family.

We are so very sorry to learn of Patty's passing. We had no current phone numbers to call so we hope the family will know that we are so very sorry for your loss. I went to school in Lewistown with Patty and thought of her as a friend. I saw her a few times off and on during the pass years but more so at the nursing home last year.
