23 Mar Obit: Mother of Former Bishop Phil Whipple
Patsy Burelison Nelson, the mother of former bishop Phil Whipple, passed away on March 21. Phil wrote on Tuesday: “My mom has decided to move to a new address. She left for her permanent home this afternoon. She decided that this Easter would be spent in heaven with Jesus himself. It is a wonderful blessing to have the hope that we have in Christ. Today is not the end, but rather the beginning. No more pain, no more confusion, and no more limitations.”
