48th Anniversary

Bill and Sandra Patterson
August 29, 1969 – August 29, 2017

When I close my eyes I still remember that first date we had at Huntingdon College where I met you.

We have traveled many roads since then and I wouldn’t change one moment if you ask me too. Side by side we have crossed each bridge together.  Hand in hand we have made it by his grace. Through the years your strength has been my companion. There is no one that could ever take your place.

I couldn’t have made this journey without you and there has been many times your love has brought me through. We have been down the road of life together. Yes, we have gone a mile or two but I couldn’t have made this journey without you.

Sandra, I’m glad I made this journey with you. I thank God for you, our family and our friends.  Happy 48th anniversary! 

I love you,



Congratulations to my son Pierce Gowan for being in top 80 percentile on his pharmacy exam and being inducted to the Auburn School of Pharmacy today in the White Coat Ceremony! I'm a so proud of you. Your an awesome dad, a great son, a great student. You can do anything son never forget it.
