    My condolences to you, Paul & your family. Been a long time since we have seen each other but I saw an old photo of you just yesterday - how timely 🙂 So sorry for your lost - may your mother be at peace now. M. (nee Holgate)

    I will miss Pat, she had a sharp mind and a good sense of humor. She loved her humming birds and took care of them as dearly as children. Pat would often tell me about growing up on a milk farm, there on the Delta within view of the river. She would talk about the rhythm of the Cows, and the old dog that herded them, as smart as a whip. She spoke of how much she loved her Father, and how he made an effort in the community he was a part of. She is with him now, in Gods kingdom.

    Pat learned from him, she was a good Christian woman, who helped the people around her. She once gave me a coat when I had none. I will miss our visits.

    My deepest sympathy to her family, Sarah, Alec, Shawn and Amy, who live on the island. And to Paul and Monica who live in Vancouver. She was so proud of all of them, and loved them, they gave her life the meaning it had.

    I know at the end she was in a great deal of pain, so I am glad that her faith gave her courage for her final journey. My deepest sympathies and prayers go to her family and friends.

    In loving pray for you all
