    My deepest sympathy for your loss. May you find peace in your many fond memories of Mrs. Denu. May you look forward to God's promise to end sickness and death and restore life to those who are asleep in death whom he remembers, Revelation 21:4 and Acts 24:15. May God keep you in his loving care..

    My dearest friend, partner in Good As New, horse enthusiast, long world discussions (and solutions), trips to the dump. We had such a wonderful time and Mel and his family were so kind to share Pat with me. Pat was such a special friend- God blessed me and others to be in her life. My sincerest condolences and prayers that Pat is with her God and in her stable heaven with her horses.
