    Praying that the Coleman Family have peace. So sorry for your loss of Patti. Please remember, not that Patti has died, but that she lived, and her life has given you memories, too beautiful to forget. Cherish those memories and may they bring a smile to your face and a calm to your heart. The Bible refers to 'death' as mankind's enemy. May you be comforted by the Bible's promise that soon death will no longer exist. Isaiah 25:8 assures us, "He (God) will actually Swallow Up Death Forever..."
