I know Patrick as Alexis's daddy. He was kind and loving to her, and she adored him. I always found him to be a good man, warm and friendly. His passing is a tremendous loss to those who loved him. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you. God bless you and help you find comfort in the days ahead. From Alexis's Grammy, Jerry's mom.
