Joy...laughter...smiles...kindness...love. Just a few words to describe Pat, who lit up a room when he walked into it...our family's tremendous loss is certainly heavens gain. My mom Cynthia, Pat's cousin, loved him so! I'm sure the first thing he did when she greeted him, was tell her one of his many jokes! Pat was a wonderful man, and he will be missed so very much.

Mr O-
I will never think of you without smiling. Because there was never a time I was with you that you didn’t make me smile.

Somehow you were a friend a father figure, a family member and so much more. I can’t remember how or when you became such a big part of my life and Doron’s life but I can’t remember a time when you weren’t.

There was a magic to you that came from the way you shared your great big heart.

You will be in our hearts forever.

Love Jess & Doron

Mr. O/Grandpa O,
We love you so much and you were and always will be forever in our hearts. We feel so blessed and honored to have been a part of your life. You always treated me and my family like your own and I always felt like you were like a dad to me--always there for me and my family. You were the most selfless, kind, caring, giving person who we had the honor to know and share in our lives. You always made us laugh, you were there for me and always checked on me when my mom passed away, and you always made us feel loved and cared for. You made us so many beautiful creations--that were made with love and really tailored to each of us. We have so many creations in and out of our house throughout the years including our check holder for our wedding, the cutest polar bears, the most beautiful bench, signs, moose, our family of rocks and so many others! I will always think of you when I see them. I have so many memories from the summer house, to amazing Christmases, just spending time together and Benjamin and Alex love you so much. We will treasure all of these memories and we love you so much. Love, Lisa, Marc, Benjamin and Alex
