"To the family, my heartfelt condolences for your loss. Please find comfort in the knowledge that God promises to end all suffering. Before long, God will wipe out every tear from our eyes, and ?death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.?(Rev. 21:3,4). May this promise from God give you comfort now and a real hope for the future. My deepest sympathy."

"I leave this message with a very heavy heart. Pat, we were long-time friends and you and your daughter Melissa were like family to me and my girls. I have so many memories and I will cherish them forever. I only wish you could've stuck around for us longer but God had his own plan for you. I will watch over Melissa in every way that I can and I know that you are up there looking over her and guiding her every step of the way. I will surely miss you my friend. Shelly Jorde"
