O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?
Our friend Patrick died last night from his illness. He has been fighting this battle with cancer for a couple years and one thing that I will always remember is how he ALWAYS showed love, a gentle spirit, gentleness during discussion and debate...even while suffering thru the horrific surgeries, treatments, etc.
Patrick was always an encouragment to me and he is so missed. Please pray for his wife Erin and their beautiful little girl Cameron.

Thanks Wanda for reporting this. I have often wondered about Patrick and how he was doing. Last month I said a quick prayer as I thought of him and that he must be going through a terrible time with his health since we (or at least, I) hadn't seen him for a while.
Well, now he certainly knows for sure. The results of guess work and all the hours of study have now become crystal clear for him. Part of me envys what he now can see so clearly and the joyous view of our Lord up close.
May Patricks family find comfort and may they be taken care of in his absense.
Rejoice in the glorious joy of our Lord you lucky dog! Revelation 14:13
This is what happens when you have two weeks vacation and the first night back is night shift and I'm up for 30hrs.
Was just checking here for the first time in a week and saw this sad news. God surely gave Patrick a fine mind and a good heart, I will miss him.
