Terry and Coy, I’m so very sorry to hear of Pat’s passing. I will always remember Pat from our days on Bow Street.
The passing of a dear loved one, is always a difficult experience for the family. Sorry for your loss. It is through the privilege of prayer that we experience God’s love and comfort in the most intimate way. May you all find comfort as you pour out your heart in prayer, to “the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort, who comfort us in all our trials.” (2 Corinthians 1:3, 4).
Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord and let perpetual light shine upon him. May his soul rest in peace.
