Patti had a favorite scripture it was Revelation 21:4 which reads “And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry, nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” As one of Jehovah’s Witnesses she loved to tell others of this wonderful promise held out in the scriptures.
