Dear Patterson family. Dear Kim.

We are very sorry about the passing of Rick. Many times I had the opportunity to work on projects with Rick, and found it to be very pleasant. As the Bible says death is our greatest enemy. According to the Bible in Revelation chapter 21 death and all other human problems that plague mankind will be done away with. Then God’s purpose for the Earth will be realized. His original purpose for Adam and Eve was to fill the Earth and subdue it and having subjection all animal life and make the Earth the entire globe a paradise. Even though God’s purpose was delayed because of the evil one Satan it is still his purpose. Jesus came to the Earth to buy back everlasting life something that Adam our first human father lost for all of mankind. Because of that death spread to all of us. Jesus will make sure that death is conquered and our loved ones will be reunited with us in Paradise right here on the Earth according to God’s original purpose. Please take comfort in knowing that this is not the final chapter in Rick’s life.

Sending greetings, condolences, and heartfelt sympathy to all of the family.

The Patterson family Hendersonville.

Dear Kim and family,
May we express our deepest condolences and sympathy. As 1 Cor. 15:26 promises, Soon, our enemy “death” will be gone forever and for those that have passed, we can’t wait to hear Jesus voice to tell those in the Memorial Tombs, “To come out!” What a wonderful hope to soon be in a beautiful, paradise earth with all of our loved ones. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.
