    4/16/2023 "All their life in this world and all their adventures had only been the cover and the title page: now at last they were beginning Chapter One of the Great Story which no one on earth had read: which goes on for ever: in which every chapter is better than the one before." —C.S. Lewis Ann was a special lady and a dear cousin. We had lots of good laughable times together. Our prayers are with each of you. May God give you peace, comfort, strength for each new day and special recall of all those precious memories. Love you all, Gary & Sarah

    Mrs Ann and Mr Dan Pate were two of the finest people I have ever known! They loved all, included me, with the Love of Christ! We always talked for the longest at every encounter, even if that was at the grocery store. I dearly loved them and the thoughts of the reunion they are now having in Heaven makes my heart overflow. God bless each and every member of their family. You have lost the best of the best! 🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼
