Brother Frank,

Teresa and I just wanted to let you know that you and Patreecia made a lasting impression on us during the short time that we became acquainted with you and Patreecia while she stayed at Ashford. We know she was an elect lady and has gone ahead to continue to do family history work with loved ones from the other side of the veil. We appreciate your strong testimony and all that you did for us to strengthen the Grasslands 5th Branch and its members. Pat will truly be missed but we know she has moved on to a much greater calling on the other side. All the best - Love, Whit & Teresa
