God will sustain you with his "right hand of righteousness" during this difficult time and through each passing day. Isaiah 41:10 says: "Do not be afraid, for I am with you. Do not be anxious, for I am your God. I will fortify you, yes, I will help you, I will really hold on to you with my right hand of righteousness". Isaiah 41:13; I "am grasping your right hand, the One (God) saying to you,...'I will help you'". Please accept my sincere condolences. Always remember God loves you and he cares for you! (Psalm 36:7; 1 Peter 5:7)

I thought the world of Patsy and John. I enjoyed going to their lovely home and talking with them on occasions. She was the nicest lady and she always had a small gift if she knew i was coming.(cookies or candy) I hate that she is not with us anymore. I know if John was aware he would also miss her. The years that I knew them went by all to quickly. I know she will be missed by all that knew her and loved her. God has another special angel sitting with him in Heaven now. Dan and Jane you were the only family members that I knew and had talked to. I am sorry for all of the family and your loss. Prayers with you at this time. Tell John I said hello and give him a hug for me.
