    Default Sad Week for our family.

    Monday evening Patrick, our middle son, had a heart attack and passed away. Since he had no history of heart trouble there was an autopsy to confirm it. Needless to say it has been a bad week for us all. Mary Jane, his wife, and Catherine & Christine, his daughters have been handing the arrangements and the Viewing and Prayer session will be Saturday afternoon with a gathering of family and friends afterwards.

    Photos are of Pat with his DD Christine, and one of Pat, Mary Jane, his wife of 38 years, and DH & I at Christine's wedding a few years ago. Pat was a handsome guy, so young to pass as he would have been 62 in a few weeks. We saw him last a few weeks ago when he visited us with his 3 1/2 and 1 1/2 grandboys, what a big happy smile he had that day.

    Oh May, my sincere condolences to you and your family. I pray you will find strength and comfort to get through the coming days.
    Nobody is going to stand up at your funeral and say she had a really expensive sofa and great shoes Life is not about stuff.

    I'm so sorry for your loss.

    It's such a shock, when they're in good health. I think back about Howard and then think about Steve and Mike and what their families have gone through this year without much hope being cured. Howard would have never wanted to linger or be a burden.

    Prayers for peace and comfort for you and your family.
