To the greatest uncle in the world. You will be missed dearly. I will always treasure the times I spent with you and your family.
Uncle Pat, if there was ever a saint on earth it would be you.
You rarely ever raised your voice to anyone, and if you ever did, they was running scared. I do have one memory of that happening and I bet you could tell all of us about it.
I love you and will miss you so much, what a BIG reunion that must be going on in heaven right now.
R.I.P UNCLE PAT until we meet again..

To the man who was the first person I have ever fished with. To the man who helped me catch my first crab. To the man who taught me everything I needed to know on how to play pool, To the man that made me who I am today and the man I will never forget. I love you and hope Jeff and peanut are enjoying your company right now.
