Prayer of St. Francis
Lord, make me an instrument of your peace. Where there is hatred, let me sow love. Where there is injury, pardon. Where there is doubt, faith. Where there is despair, hope. Where there is darkness, light. And where there is sadness, joy. O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console. To be understood, as to understand. To be loved, as to love. For it is in giving that we receive, and it's in pardoning that we are pardoned, and it's in dying that we are born to Eternal Life.
The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. In verdant pastures, he gives me repose; beside restful waters he leads me; he refreshes my soul. He guides me in right paths for his name’s sake. Even though I walk in the dark valley I fear no evil; for you are at my side, with your rod and staff that give me courage. You spread the table before me in the sight of my foes; you anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. Only goodness and kindness follow me all the days of my life; and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord for years to come.

Grandma Pat was truly a blessing in my life. The last few years we became really close and she took me in when I had no where to go. Even though I was warned she was hard to live with haha it was one of my very favorite times in my life because I got to know her so well. She taught me a lot about running a household, duties and having a routine. She was always looking out for me to come home, would always have something for me to eat after work even when I found out she’s had a bad day. She would make me homemade tea with lemon when I was sick and always asked if I wanted soup. She was an amazing grandmother and I am lucky to have spent that time with her and help her around the house. I will always cherish those memories, from yogurt dates to cutting her hair to random talks about the old days..She will be very missed. She was very passionate about what she cared about, a very hard worker and the strongest fighter. She cared about everyone so stubbornly in her own way and I feel some peace to know she is looking out for us from above.

Pat was a strong woman. She had a hard life. Loosing her husband so early in life was very hard on Pat. I feel that Pat was heart broken and couldn't truly move on in this life with happiness that she deserved. I hope and pray that she knows how much she meant to me. I was one of the lucky people who had a great mother in law. We had some moments but she always came back and showed us love.
I am so greatful that I found Tim. I got the best of the bunch, hands down.
I pray that she had a safe journey to heaven. Pat's heaven is a garden filled with thousands of saved pets as well as her homed pets.
Rest in peace ✌️ mom.
Always and forever,
