A Tribute to Patricia Cardy

 Our hearts were heavy this last week, as we heard of the death of Pat Cardy, aged 73. Though the news is desperately sad for those left behind, for her husband Andy and her family and friends, for Pat to now be with Jesus is better by far.

Pat lived a life that was marked with tragedy, and yet each step of the way she trusted in her Saviour and walked a rich and deep walk with Him. It was our privilege to play a small part of sharing her story, through her autobiography, There Came a Day.

When asked what she hoped people would gain from the book she said, “The reality of a loving God in every situation, in every day. Writing it was better than you or I could think. I wrote with other people in mind, wanting each person who read to know that there is a reality of God in your life, no matter what the day may throw at you.”

The tragic events of her young daughter Jennifer’s murder could have easily made Pat a bitter and unforgiving woman. However, it is testimony to Pat’s faith in Jesus that she walked a different road and did so with joy even in the sorrows. Pat is now reunited with Jennifer, but far greater than that, she is now in the presence of her Saviour and Maker.

The great news of the gospel is that the life–changing freedom and forgiveness that Christ can bring is open to all.

We mourn the loss of Pat and know that Andy and the family will be feeling deep pain at this time. We will be praying for them and continuing to pray that her book is used of God to point people to the living hope that is found in Jesus.
