Sadie, Rene’ & Lori, I am so very sorry for your loss. Pat was a truly amazing person. He always had something interesting to relate and a smile of greeting when meeting. He reminded me very much of Tante Maria in his quietness and manner. I know he will be dearly missed.... condolences and prayers to all of you and prayers for the repose of Pat’s soul....
