Last Saturday (8-30-20) Pat's friends, family and his beloved chickens gathered near the newly named Hatle Hen House. A little girl went into the Hen House to retrieve a freshly laid egg. It's easy to believe that the egg was especially laid for this grand occasion. Pat was known as the Chicken Whisperer. His relatives even said that Pat's nickname as a youth was Rooster! He had a unique way of making people and animals feel loved.
Anew Living Founder and Director, Lori Barlow Matthews along with her husband Mark led the memorial for Pat. They held up a beautifully made sign in front of the chickens that said: "Hatle Hen House" as the chickens posed in Pat's honor. Several people spoke about the impact that Pat had made on their lives and organizations. Pastor Shaun Rost, Director of the Sunshine Rescue Mission and YWAP Director Bob Kuebler had great things to say about Pat.
Every Sunday Pat invited people to Church For The Nations Flagstaff. He always wore a shirt that proclaimed his faith loud and clear with the words, "I stand for the flag and I kneel for the cross." Pat Hatle had his life priorities straight. Stand for what you believe in and give honor to those who died for our freedom. Jesus died. for our eternal freedom from sin. Pat's now in heaven with Jesus. He's already heard the words of Christ as He smiled and said, "Well done good and faithful servant." Thanks God for blessing us with the life of Pat. Help us to love each other the way Pat and Jesus love us. Amen.
