It was so nice to see the people of Monroeville,and Norwalk come together for Patty Ann to pray for her healing. God works in mysterious ways, His wonders to preform. Some will say He didn't heal her, I disagree. She just moved to a place where there is no pain, she moved into her mansion that He personally prepared for her in heaven. Imagine being able to sit at the feet of "The Lord " and ask Him anything !! I'm sure her family and friends will miss her but they will see her again when He

returns in a cloud of glory ! She sounded like a terrific lady. Like in the favorite Christmas movie, " Its a Wonderful Life," look at all the lives she touched. Well done Thou Good and Faithful servant, was her greeting as she entered those pearly gates.

My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

I would like to let the Ringholtz family know how sorry my family and I are for their loss Patty was special kind of lady as I am sure you are wll aware please know how special Patty was to my family and I. I pray that god will give you the strength and courage to get through this lean on each other she was so proud of her family she would often speak of her children during our therapy sessions she was such a wonderful person. She is in a much better place now those left behind are the ones that really suffer. I met patty back in 2001 when my youngest child was refered to Gerken for therapy because he was diagnosed with mild-moderate CP he was only 3 months old then she helped me get through a lot of the guilt that a parent feels when there child is born with something wrong she also helped me understand that it was not my fault that sometimes things just happen for no reason. She taught me so much about his condition and how to help him get stronger she also helped me get stronger in so many ways. My son is 7 Years old now and a healthy very energetic 1st grader. I give all the credit to Patty, Sue, and Carol who all worked with him they have so much patience and it always looked like they enjoyed what they were doing with all the children no matter how hard they could be to handle. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
