Unexpected family trip

Dear friends,

We just heard that Pat’s father passed away Friday, January 16, at 12:15PM in the Easton, PA hospital. He had been admitted earlier in the week with a bleeding ulcer, and he had weakened so much that they were unable to help him recover. Pat’s brother Bob was with Dad as he passed into the Lord’s presence.

Pat and our eldest daughter Laura are flying to the States this Monday to be with the family at this time. Unfortunately, Jack and Rebecca are not able to join them, so they will hold down the home front, together with Adriaan, Laura’s husband. We appreciate your prayers for us all.

In Christ,
Jack and Pat



  1. So sorry to hear about your dad. Will be praying for you and the family as you travel to the states and with all the things you have to do when you get here. Sending a big hug!!!! Miss you all, Chris


  2. Dear Pat,

    John and I were so sorry to hear about your fathers suffering and death
    We are praying for you and your family.

    John and Marcia Erickson


  3. Dear Pat, Jack and family,

    We feel very sorry that Pat has to say good bye to her Dad.
    May the Lord fill your hearts with His peace during this time of bereavement and may your thoughts be filled with gratitude of the blessings of the past. We take our loved ones with us, wherever we go and they’ll get the best “seat” in our journey together.

    Praying for you as a family,

    Rein & Kathy Carlier
