I want to express my deepest sympathy in your loss. I did not have the opportunity to meet Patrick in person but I remember seeing him on our local TV stations talking about the Honor Flight of Southern Indiana and his love for all veterans. I was very moved by his compassion for all veterans and service men and women. I have worked in tobacco prevention and cessation for 20 years. I want to thank you for posting on Patrick's obituary "The family asks that you all stop smoking now. " I know there could be someone who needs to stop smoking and will read this and take the first steps towards a smokefree life. God Bless You.
