So sorry for your loss, Janet. Pat will surely be missed. He was a true friend. We felt when we saw you two, it was always easy to converse especially with Pat about our Costa Rica memories. You and Pat will always be a part of our hearts. Love to you, Gary and Carol Bradford

Warren and I loved Pat with all our hearts and he is still in our hearts in a better place.

We spent many vacations together, including after tax season trips to Sanibel, Florida where we eventually bought a place close to Sanibel on Summerlin Rd, Lee County, FL. (where we live now most of the year now).

We love you Janet and hope you will be happy in Elizabethan, TN with Martha, Josh and his wife .

We know Pat is heaven with the Lord and seeing all his family and friends. As one of his friends messaged me he and "Barbie" are probably dancing and jumping around right now and having a good time.

I was so shocked and saddened to read of Pat's death in today's obituary. I worked with Pat for several years and always thought of him as a Gentle Giant. Janet, please accept my condolences in the loss of your sweet and kind hubby. Godspeed, Pat.
