Pat was a precious friend of Ima sue duvall from Valparaiso. She stayed at our home many times, and we enjoyed her visits. She was a God Loveing prayer warrior..
We will miss her terribly, but she’s in perfect peace with our Lord and Savior
With love and prayers ,
Blessings from the children of Ima sue, Stephanie, mark and Angela.
