Uncle Pat, you will be truly missed. I always enjoyed seeing you and playing cards with you, although I never seemed to win a hand! I will miss the times that we spent together having a chat with both you and Wally, the most wonderful caregiver that anyone could be blessed to have. You taught me how to play cards, listen to Irish radio, watch the Kerry All-Ireland football championship of 1975, answer the phone, and carry on a conversation all at the same time! You were such a character, truly one of a kind. Although you had a long illness, I used to tell you that you were the strongest man ever, you never let it define you, and you always kept your spirits up. We wish you everlasting peace Uncle Pat. Love, Kathy, Bob, Jack, and Lily

Uncle Pat was a one-of-a-kind person. He was always a hard worker. He enjoyed all things Irish! He loved playing cards with his friends. He loved spending time with family, especially my mom Kathleen and my aunt Nora. He treasured his phone calls and contacts with relatives in Ireland. He was fortunate to have wonderful caregivers, especially Wally. He endured his pain with dignity! We are grateful he’s in a better place and out of pain. Hopefully enjoying all the things he missed out on these past few years. He will be truly missed! Love, Mary and Frank

Uncle Pat: We will miss you dearly. It was always wonderful to see you and to catch up on Kerry Radio, the Irish hour, and Irish football on TV at your place. Always a lot of action with you. Thank you for teaching me how to play cards. You always beat me, though. You were a role model for someone who does not let his illness define him or take away his spirit and love of life. It was wonderful to witness your lifelong friendship and love for my Mom and all of your sisters and brothers. Eric loved visiting with you, too, and playing cards. Love, Ann and Eric
