Mourning # 19
All my life I’ve loved God and Jesus
Christ, my personal savior, who
protects us always if we renounce sin.
I went to church at the invitation
of our Pastor and Praised the Lord.
We sang and prayed and holiness
reigned. We said Peace Be Unto You
and hugged and hugged and sang
and prayed. We knew we were
violating the new laws but we proudly
held to the old higher laws. Confident our faith,
not demon masks, would protect us. So many

---- A Michigan couple, Leslie and Patricia
McWaters, both died from Covid-19 on
November 24th. They had been married for
47 years. Leslie, known as LD, was a truck
driver and a veteran in the US Naval Reserve.
Pat was an RN who spent 35 years in
the operating room at Foote Allegiance Hospital
in Jackson, Michigan, her home town. LD was also
a Jackson native.
Pat was the boss; LD was the joker, ‘the king
of one-liners.’ But Pat got the last laugh as her
daughter, Joanna Sisk, imagined that Pat went
first and then said like always, “LD, it’s time to go!”
The couple loved dancing at the bar where they met.
They loved playing cards with their friends.
They drove their 1959 Corvette to car shows.
They are survived by two daughters and three
grandchildren and six great-grandchildren.
