I wanted to express my heartfelt condolences to Pat's family. For right now, there's no detour around grief, no shortcut through mourning. However, 2 Cor.4:7 says that God can give us, "... power beyond what is normal ", to go from one day to the next. This does not mean that we no longer cry, or that we forget. It means we recover. We recover because of our hope. Jesus Christ talked about our hope in John 5:28 which says, "... all those in the memorial tomb will hear his voice and come out ". Jesus was referring to the resurrection. That is our amazing hope! The Bible likens our hope to an anchor. Just like an anchor stabilizes a ship, our hope stabilizes us and keeps us from drowning in overwhelming sadness. 2 Cor.1:3 describes our Creator as, "... the God of all comfort ". One way that God comforts us is by moving people who care about us to give us words of encouragement that we need to hear. May the God of comfort be your comfort now, during this time of sorrow.

Pat loved to fish!! And good at it, no wonder he ended up in South Dakota, and found the love of his life from NE South Dakota; My sister, Sabra. He loved his family dearly and spoke of them often between fishing stories, ha! His trip to the Black Hills with our family will be remembered for years, What a kind and wonderful person to all that knew him, he will be missed by many, friends, family, co-workers and all who were blessed to know him no matter how short it was. Proud to call Pat McCarty my Friend.
