Pat and Marion were married in 1950 after having met several years earlier in Cairo. They were married for 58 years, during which time they raised seven children, served in four different parishes, started up a charity to help Vietnamese orphans which later expanded to do other work in many different countries, helped countless souls to come to a personal knowledge of Jesus, fed all who came knocking on their door, and became a friend to thousands. Marion went “home” in 2008, and Pat followed her five months later in early 2009. They lived long, full lives — and we are all richer because of their love for us.
