5 Condolences for Alfred Patton English III
My deepest sympathies are with you and your family.Surely, no words can describe the pain of losing a loved one in death, especially one so young. Rest assured though, that the Bible promises at John 5vs.28and29 a sure resurrection for all those we have lost.
My sincere sympathy to the family and friends of “Pat” English, III. It is a sad time, and to perhaps bring some comfort, I would like to share that our Creator is not indifferent to our suffering. He will soon provide a complete solution. You can read this promise, in your copy of the Bible, at Isaiah 25:8 and Revelation 21:3,4.

I am so sorry to learn of Patrick’s passing…I remember babysitting him when he was just a baby.
Kay, Pat was one of my favorite students. Thought and Prayers are with you. Paula
Kay and family. Mom and I were very sorry to hear of Pat’s passing. He is now out of pain, but that doesn’t make it any easier, as I well know. It isn’t easy to bury your son, as we both have.
Mom and I wanted to come to the service, but we were already committed to Meals on Wheels at the same time. As you know, you are considered family to both of us. Hope to see you soon. Love you.
