    To Mrs. Helen Babb: You will never know how much it means to me to have the picture you and Uncle Harley sent me of him and me at the Clarence & Mattie Babb family reunion. Thank you for being so good to my Uncle Harley; he consoled me when my Jeremy died, and he prayed for me just a couple weeks ago. I loved him and I love you, and am praying for the peace that only God can give to be yours… made him happy, Helen. Love & Prayers, Patti

I encourage you to take heart knowing that he has achieved his ultimate healing – and – he is in heaven with Jesus. I am so very sorry for your loss; he was so good to me and I loved him and will not forget him. Blessings, Patti

    To Aunt Helen and my Mother: You are blessed to have had Uncle Harley as a brother. And although I know you will miss him, I also know that he would tell you, “We grieve not as the world grieves” because he knew and proclaimed the power of the Name above every name – Jesus – and he loved that name – Jesus. I love you both – this is not the end… is a “Later” moment, not good-bye. Love you both, Patti
