  • My heart is broken for you Bob and Lynette.
    I am just in shock and I can only imagine what you are feeling. I always loved talking with her and catching up on cousin stuff. I loved that we were in Craft Club together so I got to see her more frequently. Please let me know if there is anything I can do in the coming days. God Bless your entire family. I will keep you in my prayers.

  • Bob and Lynette – I was so sorry to hear about your loss. Pat was truly a wonderful person. She will definitely be missed. You and your family are in our thoughts and prayers.

  • Bob and Lynette…I have so many fond memories of Pat…I can still see her crocheting those darling mice she made for the Christmas tree one year and making Lynette crocheted ties for her hair, her unique laugh, her classy style, her patience of a saint for allowing me to practically LIVE in her home as a kid, and the many meals she allowed me to share with your family….she is fondly remembered….may YOUR memories give you strength in the difficult days ahead.

  • Bob:
    I can’t imagine your loss. You were blessed with a wonderful partner; Patti was a special person. I’m sure she didn’t want to leave you, but she had no choice. Take comfort in knowing that she is with our Father and at peace.

  • Mr. Miller, Lynette, Kelly, Caleb, and Jayden Grace,
    May God bestow His continued spirit of peace on all of you during this difficult time. We are praying for you.
