Anne, I was so sad to read Pat's obituary this morning in the paper but then had so many memories of him at Mauldin HS and then at Francis Marion. I believe the last time I saw him was while I was working at Greenville TEC at McAlister Square , and he was walking down the hall. I saw him, and he happily brought me up to date on the things he'd done and the things he was then doing. I know that both he and his grandmother Grace are happy to again be reunited, and I hope the sadness you're presently experiencing will be, in time, replaced with many happy memories of your lives together. Sincerely, Bobbi Fraser Burns

I will miss seeing Marvin's smiling face at the Camelot. He always had an interesting story or something funny to tell. He will be missed by many. Rest in peace, my Friend. ❤️
