Enough to make an angel's crown.
A gentle soul, we'd surely say...
Wore a crown of blooms to Glory today -
The passing of my father-in-law, Orval Pate, on March 14th, 2007, brought us to the beautiful hills of East Texas, and his boyhood home of Linden, for his burial. Orval now rests next to Allen's mother, Helen Pate.
We will miss his kind and gentle spirit.
