Lori! I'd like to express my sympathy on the passing of your dear father. He's at rest with your mother now, and they're both in the ever loving arms of our Lord and Savior

We were neighbors of Pat for 18 years. Our children have fond memories of the play time they spent in the field next to their home. I could always count on Pat anytime I needed help. We wish to express our condolences to the Cambest Family and assure them he will remain in our prayers.
