To Dave and Pat’s Family,
I was sorry to read of Pat’s passing in the Sunday LNP. I remember good times singing with her in the choir at St. Thomas Church and I’m sure she’s singing with the angels in heaven now. Praying for God’s peace for all of you as you grieve the loss of someone so dear to your hearts.

Dear Dave and family, 
I was very saddened to hear of Pat’s passing in church today. May God’s blessings surround and comfort you and your family as you grieve and move into the next chapter of your lives.I have many fond memories of the good times we had together in St.Johns choir years ago. I was so glad to hear Pat continued singing. What a joy she was. A lovey spirit. Now she’s singing to God’s glory in heaven in the heavenly choir. How fitting!
Know you’re in my husband’s, David and my prayers.God bless,
David and Kiki (Ford) Nye
