Grandaddy was the best man I knew. It comforts me tremendously to know he’s in Heaven with a brand new body! While, selfishly, we will miss you– we all know your suffering has ended and that you’ll be there to greet us one day. We love you always!
Our prayers are going up for all of you! We had the pleasure of meeting ‘Granddaddy’ on several occassions and loved him dearly. He was a wonderful man and I (being Jan’s mom) appreciate how he welcomed him into the family with open arms.
He will be missed by all who knew him.
I want to share my deepest condolences to all the Hagan family. To Nannie, Karen, Aunt Sissy, Kassie, K.J., Jen and Chris, you are all in my prayers. I feel very privileged to have had the opportunity to meet Pat and to get to know him. It was so obvious how much he loved his Lord and his family and if he could tell you today what he sees now, just imagine what he would say. He is truly one of God’s Soldiers that has gone home. I am so glad that our Austin got to know him too. God bless each of you during this time and if I can do anything for you, please let me know.
Thinking of your family at this time and keeping you all in prayers
for peace and comfort.
My heart was saddened to hear that Pat’s journey on Earth had ended. He

Condolences and much love go out to all family members. My prayers and
thoughts are with you.

My deepest sympathy goes to the Hagan family, however, rejoicing in the fact that Pat is with his wonderful Lord Jesus today! I worked for Electric Supply Co. for 22 years and I can say without a doubt Pat was one of my favorite customers. Always smiling, always laughing and always full of stories from his years as an electrician. I will miss Pat!

In Christian Love,
May you all find peace in your memories and in the knowledge of Pat’s salvation and presence in the Father’s kingdom. God Bless you

Karen & Family:
I was so saddened to see in the paper today where your father passed away. I have walked in your moccasins & I know how very hard it is. I want you to know that you are in my prayers & I know that God will give you strength as you face the difficult days without your daddy. He knows the reason for each tear & how you are hurting at this time, He knows the heartache of your heart right now. I know how much you loved your daddy. He loved the Lord so you know where he is at this moment & he is not sick any longer but walking the streets of gold with His Lord & Saviour. As you go through the days ahead they will be difficult but you lean on God & He will give you strength to face each & every day with new grace & mercy & He will increase your strength as your faith grows looking for the day when you will see your daddy again along with Jesus. I know you were a daddy’s girl as I was. I’m here for you Karen if you need me. You know my number. I will see you Sunday. He will live on in your heart by the memories as you hold them close each & every day. Stay close to your mother in these days ahead as she is going to need you. Love you & I am praying for you & your family. Teressa Tipton Warren (From school)
