I have a hole in my heart right now that surgery cannot mend. My beautiful Patty breathed her last breath November 26, 2007. She went to sleep peacefully after telling me the morning before that she would love me forever. I sat beside her bed and held her until her final breath. She had her beautiful smile right up until the end. She will forever inspire me to remember that there is still beauty and love in this world. Patty fought valiantly for one year before cc took her life. She grew to love each one of you, as I would read all the new post to her. Patty had a sparkling personallity and a childlike ehthusiasm for all of the wonderful things of life. Her firm belief in the Lord Jesus Christ and eternal life caused her to have no fear of death. She went to her death with the excitment that we would meet again on that resurrection morning when all tears will be wiped away and we will be together again for eternity. Mine and Patty’s prayer is that each one of you will stand firm in that belief and someday in Heaven, we will all meet and know that it was all worth it. We love you all.
Ted (and Patty)
