Wolter family,So sorry to hear of your mothers/grandma’s death. She so dearly loved all of you & took great joy in each and everyone of you. Truly a servant of the Lord & always knew how to make anyone feel at home or welcome. As a advocate for those who have Disabilities,she shined and took on the challenges. It is truly a great loss to many. It is often difficult to understand why God allows us to experience such great sorrow, but He has prepared a wonderful place in heaven for those who accept his forgiveness.God has a wonderful plan for each of us,He will use Pat’s life, death, & influence in many ways for years to come. She is in a wonderful place now with her loving heavenly father. Ecclesiastes3:11He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the hearts of men;yet they cannot fathom what God has done from beginning to end. My prayers are with you all. Bob Thomas (FCBDD)

Because we are not able to attend the service for Pat we wish to express our heart felt thanks for having known her. It is a good memory to think of the many past days with Ron and Pat. We were in their congregation at Grace Westerville and were blessed because of it. We pray for peace for the family in this time of loss. God’s blessings to you all.
God loves you and so do we.
