We are sharing in your sorrow. Harold and I have some wonderful memories of our youth with Pat and we sure did Let the good times roll. Psalm 7
Pat always had that ear to ear smile and I can still hear his laughter. Love never dies John 11:25
Harold and I and St. Brigid would like to give a Lake of Beer to GOD and every drop would be a prayer.
Cheers to GOD. Pat. Love. Life. Laughter

Pat. My brother. I have so many wonderful memories. We were years apart but close in many ways. I will miss you until we meet again. I can’t grasp the fact that this happened. All the holidays when we where young. I still have the foosball game I got one Christmas when you got out of the army. You would sing fly like an eagle every time you scored on me. So fly like an eagle my brother. I love you.
