Right now, when your loss is so fresh, it may be difficult for you to imagine that this pain will ever go away.
But in time the blessing of God unfailing grace will soften the hurt that you're feeling. Until then friends are surrounding you and lifting you up in prayer.
The grace of God prevails. The victory is won. I, too, worked with Pat and Gene Riley at McCall School. My life is richer for having known them both.
Dear Martin and Patricia:
I too, mourn the passing of your mother and my friend. I will always remember her as a kind and caring friend. My condolences and prayers are with you.
I taught with Pat and Gene at McCall School on the third floor.I enjoyed both of them. Pat was a great teacher who enjoyed being creative in the gifted program. I'm saddened to hear of her passing. Susan Gray Phillips
