I am so sorry to hear about Jamie. I don’t know if he’d been sick or it was sudden, but he was way too young to leave this life. Please know that my thoughts and prayers are with you and Patrick.

You and your brothers were great neighbors. Always up for a run, street football (and it was a nice tackle you put on me, even though I held on to the catch), or frisbee dodge. Rest well, and love to the family.
