    I am deeply sadden to hear of the loss of your father. I knew him to be a great man full of wisdom and knowledge and always willing share his this with others. I learned so much from him and will cherish the memories of the times we shared together. I believe that his work here was done and God called him home to be with his loving wife and all those that have gone before him.

    I was just thinking about Mr. Pace today and came across this obituary. I am so sad to hear of his passing. I was one of his nurses at the dialysis clinic. He was the most sweetest and kind man I know. My thoughts and prayers are with his friends and family.

    Wayne & Gale,
    I was off work during the holidays and unaware of your father’s passing. You and your entire family are in my thoughts and prayers. I will be forever grateful for the opportunity to care for your Dad at Mt. Carmel East. His love for you two was the basis of our many conversations. I was impressed by his wisdom and compassion.
    May the Lord comfort you as only HE can.
