  1. My heartfelt condolences to the Patterson family. Our heavenly father lovingly reminds us that he is close to the brokenhearted (Ps34:18) He also gives the assurance that he will resurrect our dear loved ones back to life as Jesus did his friend Lazarus. (Jn.11:38) May these promises bring you comfort and give you hope for the future ( Rom15:4)

  2. My deepest condolences to the family for your loss, may the God of all comfort, Jehovah God, strengthen you and comfort you during this difficult time, he cares for you. 2 Corinthians 1:3, 4; 1Peter 5:7 (

  3. My condolences to the Patterson family, May the Lord be with you during this time of grief. Carole is with Jesus now and as happy as can be. Take comfort in knowing this.

  4. What a blessing Carole was to me. When she first came to work at James Plumbing I thought oh me what have I’ve gotten into! Being opposite personalities we quickly became friends. Her life became an adventure for me. She never meet a stranger and her smile I will never forget. One of the greatest things she did for our family was to introduce Misty to our son Scott. Not only did we get the greatest daughter-in-law but Misty’ family. I know that Carole and Molly have been talking nonstop since she entered heaven and probably some dancing going on. Every time I think of Charlie I hear her laughter and she her smile. I will be praying for Jim as you adjust to her passing — she loved you so much. It will be hard so rely on God and he will be with you every step. Precious memories will be ours forever.
