I did not know Patty personally, but I know she must've been an amazing woman to make such an impact on Aunt Jeanne and in that way I know she has also impacted my life. I pray for peace and comfort over your family.

My thoughts are with Patty’s family. It is so painful to lose someone, yet no one else can really know all that you feel except our Heavenly Father. He knows and feels your pain. He calls death an enemy and promises to remove it forever, Isaiah 25:8 “And he will swallow up death forever…” He also promised to wake up all our loved ones, in the memorial tombs, from death (Isaiah 26:19). What joy it will be to see our loved ones again and to enjoy life as our Creator purposed (Psalms 145:16). I  hope these words give all of you comfort.
