Dear Souder family,
My hearts aches for you at the lose of Pat. He was so fiercely devoted to his family. He loved his boys more than life!
I pray that God will fill your hearts with comfort and peace.
"and those the LORD has rescued will return. They will enter Zion with singing; everlasting joy will crown their heads. Gladness and joy will overtake them, and sorrow and sighing will flee away." Isaiah 35:10

One of the first true friends I ever had. Pat spoke softly, but his words were mighty. Knowing Pat made me a better person. My heart breaks for your family.

Patrick John, You will be missed more than you can ever think of. We always had such fun and great laughs when our little goup that we called family would get together for backyard fires and swimming. God was in need of another angel and little did he know he was getting such a great man and father! Prayers go out to your family and your boys.

Our prayers are with all of the friends and family of Pat. We are truly saddened by this news. I've known Aric for as long as I can remember now and I never really got to know Pat on the same level but I know that he was truly a great man, father and friend, loved and will be missed by many. My memories go back a long way but I will never forget Pat's smile when I would come

My thoughts and prayers go out to the family as they have lost this wonderful man. I have so many memories of you Pat I can't express them all. I remember the first time I met you, when you worked at Mcpherson College in the caf. It was the first day of classes and I didn't know who you were but you looked right at me as I was getting my food for lunch and told me that I belonged

We can't imagine what you are feeling, but we want to express our condolences to you. Please let us know of any way we can help you.
My memory that sticks out the most with Pat, is the first time my son Chase met him. Chase "thought" he was talking to Aric, of course Pat knew and was playing along. Then Aric walked up. Chase was looking at the both of you in utter shock. He was frozen in his shoes for awhile, we were all laughing so hard. RIP Pat, we are blessed to have known you. The Garibaldi's

Doc & Aric - I am soooo sorry to hear about Pat. It really broke my heart!! I can't imagine what the whole family is going thru right now. Keep your eyes up & the Lrd will give you strength. God only take the angels!! I used to tell Doc that I could only tell the boys apart at walmart when one would walk right passed me & the other one would stop & visit. RIP Pat!!!!!
Aric, if you need anything get ahold of Dan or I!!
