Dear Ken, Beebe, Gail, Tammy, Becky, Bub and family: so sorry for the loss of one of this world's kindest and most loving ladies. I remember Pat (and all our time together at the beach etc.)with fondness. I am so glad she had such a wonderful family to surround her with so much love, and thrilled she has so many grandchildren and great grandchildren, what a testament to a great lady. Here is one of my favorite quotes from the Bible, perhaps it will bring you some comfort:
from the Book of Wisdom
The souls of the just are in the hand of God, and no torment shall touch them.
They seemed in the view of the foolish to be dead; and their passing away was thought an affliction and their going forth from us, utter destruction.
But they are in peace.
As gold in the furnace He proved them, and as sacrificial offerings He took them unto Himself.
In the time of their visitation they shall shine, and shall dart about as sparks through stubble.
Those who trust in Him shall understand truth, and the faithful shall abide with Him in Love, because Grace and Mercy are with his Holy Ones.
God bless you all, we are all thinking of you,
Mary, Bob and the entire Marek family
