I offer my deepest sympathies to the family and friends of Mrs. Patricia McLauglin Schneese. I wanted to share with you a wonderful hope for our future, that has brought me comfort many times. That hope is found in Jehovah God's word the Bible it helps us to  cope with the present, overcome the past and to give us something to strive for so we can walk with determination toward the future. In Isaiah 65:21-23 it says  "They will build houses and live in them, And they will plant vineyards and eat their fruitage. They will not build for someone else to inhabit, Nor will they plant for others to eat. For the days of my people will be like the days of a tree, And the work of their hands my chosen ones will enjoy to the full. They will not toil for nothing, Nor will they bear children for distress..." what a contrast to what we see in the world, can you imagine a time when we will all have everything we need to live? But that hope is real. But why live in a world where we will just eventually die again? The bible answers in Revelation 21:3, 4 it says "Look! The tent of God is with mankind, and he will reside with them, and they will be his people. And God himself will be with them. And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away." Everyone who has died will be resurrected to a paradise earth and they won't ever die again, and we will be able to be there with them!

Pat was a beautiful and caring woman. Knowing She's watching over her family now like a guardian angel will hopefully lessen your family's pain of her loss. For the Love of God... please tell me someone has her meatball and gravy recipe!
