Guestbook Entries

“Individuals such as Pat do not enter everyone's life. No better, more loyal, more caring friend exists than Pat, and those who had the blessing of knowing and working with him owe him more than words can express, for he made us better and stronger and more secure in what and who we are. I am profoundly sad for his loss, am hurting for his loved ones, and appreciate every day of the past 40 years that I call him friend.”
