I want to express to Miss Betty and Laura, my deepest sympathy.
Laura your father was such a good influence on me growing up at West Highland. He was not just an RA instructor but a person who I looked up to and learned a some really valuable life lessons from. He was always there to help with all the different activity's the RA's were doing. From the pine wood derby races, to the camping trips to the lake, or helping with a merit skill. He always had an encouraging word of advice. And was a good sport when us youth guys would make jokes. One night on an RA camping trip we were wound up and not ready to get to sleep and were keeping the adults awake, your father came out to our tent and said I don't want to hear another peep out of yall, you hear me. And all the guys started peeping like baby chicks. I remember it to this day. He was a good man and I will always remember him with great admiration. May God bless you and your family during this very difficult time. (P.S. the photo of me and Laura driving his Porsche 911 was faked.) Love to All.

My uncle Pat was a man that can never be replaced. He was the most unique person I’ve ever been around. Pat was always the go to man. He was full of so much knowledge and loved to share it. He was one of three people in my life that I truly valued there advice. He is what I have always tried to measure up to as a man. When I approach something no matter what I always think how would uncle Pat do this. Until we meet again I will save my questions for you and look forward to our next conversation. I love you and will miss you.

I have fond memories of growing up at West Highland and visiting at Mr, Pat and Mrs. Betty’s house. He always made me feel welcome and even got me to swim in the lake water. He also let Carey drive his Porsche to Laura’s dance which was a highlight of my brothers early years. I am sorry for your loss but know he is in Gods presence tonight. Praying for you all.
