Our prayers go out to Patrick family concerning the death of Dr. Teleka Patrick, '09. We pray that God will carry them through these tough days ahead and that they will feel His love surrounding them. After talking and praying with Teleka's parents, Elder and Mrs. Patrick told me that they are "walking through a valley of shadows." Many of us can never comprehend the suffering being borne by this good family. The faith of the Patrick family remains strong, though their hearts are broken. Let us continue in prayer and support for the Patrick family.
- Dr. Leslie N. Pollard, president, Oakwood University
Note: A segment of the Oakwood University Chapel Service on Thursday, April 17, at 9:50 a.m., will be dedicated to the memory of Dr. Teleka Patrick.
