Very rarely, you get to know someone who is in your thoughts all the time. That was Pat. He was extraordinarily kind, funny, supportive, and smart. As I have grown older, my image of Pat in my mind gets larger as he has qualities become more obviously important. I will miss new experiences with Pat, but I sure do cherish my old ones.

I regrettably only knew Pat during the last 2 years of his life. He told me quite a bit about himself. I will always remember him as one of my best friends.
Deep condolences to Pat’s children and family. May you find comfort in knowing that he rests in peace.
