    Pat was so much fun to sing with! Spindale UMC really enjoyed the many talents of Pat and Frank. Their love of God and music inspired us all. We’re thankful to have known them. Pat, turn the page and sing along with Frank and the Heavenly Choir. May God grant the Young Family peace as they grieve and joy as they celebrate Pat’s life.

  6. Pat and Frank were so much fun to be with at our Klinger Cousins reunion each summer. So glad we kept in touch for those many years. As we got older and meeting together was getting more difficult, it was Frank who said “All good things must end”. God Bless all of you in your time of grief, losing your parents within three months. Do keep in touch.
