Deb, Kyle, Firefighters-
My deepest condolences to all of you. Thanks for sharing Pat with all of us. He sure made great, fun and poignant memories for us to impart amongst each other. One road trip where we don't get to go with him. Pat's a very good man, who will be greatly missed. I'm glad he left elements of himself in my life. My prayers go out to all. Godspeed, Pat.
