Adios my friend and fellow fisherman of over forty years. I will miss you and your crazy sense of humor. Thank you for the many times you beat the hell out of me playing chess. You taught me how to lose with grace. Thanks for the many times of fishing, playing dominoes, drinking beer, and trying to determine who is the better fisherman. And yes, you did rob the cradle!
Tell Mr Ed hello for me!
Your friend, Hector

What a beautiful union between two loving soulmates. Always a pleasure to speak with Patton, the mild, gentle giant , whenever I stopped by the Patton home. His witty replies to DeeDee's witty comments was always a delight to hear. Thank you Patton for a life well-lived.
With love and fond memories,
Charlene Waller and Family
