When Jeff and I moved into the neighborhood, Pat was the first neighbor we met. He came right over and introduced himself and informed us who our neighbors were.
Pat made us feel welcome to the neighborhood immediately and I will never forget that.
Pat was a kind soul and will never be forgotten.
Rest in peace our dear neighbor and friend.

Jackie and family
Please accept our sympathy and condolences in the loss of our "holy man" precious Patrick.
He was a loving caring, spiritual, man of the cloth.
Jesus loves Patrick and he loved Jesus and we loved Patrick. We will miss him terribly.
It will not be the same without him.
