Today we mourn the passing of one of our pillars of strength and light. Mrs. Patricia Kirkpatrick has gone to be with the Lord and our hearts are torn as we will miss her but thrilled to see her free from all pain and sitting at the feet of Christ. As we look to the future of Circle of Hope, we recognize that it is our firm foundation of partners and leaders who have paved the way for progress.
Mrs. Kirkpatrick’s heart for the Lord shined through her beautiful smile and into all aspects of her life. She loved her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren deeply and left a legacy of caring for generations to come, including our board member and her son, Drew Kirkpatrick.
This heart of love extended to all the children at the Grace Center as well. We are honored to have Patricia’s Home on the Grace Center campus welcoming lost and broken children into a home with love and legacy and transforming them just as Mrs. Kirkpatrick’s generous and kind heart has transformed each person to cross her path. Her lasting legacy is the love her family has always shown by living out God's call to be his hands and feet at home and abroad. It is an honor to partner with the Kirkpatrick family. Please join us in praying for the peace that passes understanding to reign and joy to spread as they grieve and remember a beautiful soul. Saying goodbye is never easy so instead we will say, “Tionana” (See you soon) and await a beautiful reunion in Heaven.
Stay tuned for updated information on donations in honor of Mrs. Kirkpatrick.
Her memorial service will be at the United Methodist Church in Post, Texas on Saturday.
