Pat, my heart breaks for you. I’ll always have fond memories of the Indiana Jones wheelchair pusher who helped navigate the cobblestone streets of Rome. Hoping you are able to fly through that “ crying because it’s over” stage of grief and quickly emerge in the “smile because it happened” one. I’m betting you hve plenty of happy reasons to grin after a life with David. Heaven has gained a special treasure. God bless and keep you. You’ll be in my thoughts and prayers.

My sincere sympathy to you Pat. On our Italy trip last year, David stole my heart because he reminded me so much of my late brother, Joey ; they were ACTS brothers. I could see the love David had in his heart for Jesus and all of mankind in the way he treated everyone around him. He was a perfect gentleman. His love for you Pat, and actually your love for one another, was the most evident . My heart hurts for you as you have to carry on with this wonderful man. God's strength and blessings for you.
