Patricia's testimony is spoken best in the words of the Apostle Paul in II Timothy 4: 6-8 "For I am now ready to be offered and the time of my departure is at hand. I have fought a good fight, I have kept the faith; Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord the righteous judge , shall give me at that day: and not to me only but unto all them, also that love his appearing." As a final word from the deceased I bid God's blessing to all who attend.
