Gladdy and Mary,
We were so sad to hear about Patrick passing. I asked about your family at the Sweeton reunion this year because we didn't have your address to send you an invitation. Someone said told us Patrick had died. We felt so sad. The first time we met him was when we had the reunion at our house about 18 years ago and you all came and Patrick brought a homemade pie and said he came because the invitation said we were having all sorts of games and fun. I loved him immediately. I wish we could have spent more time with you Mary and Gladdy and Patrick. We miss our times with you Gladdy when we lived on Canton Road when me and Dick first got married and rented Henry Bahres house and we went to the Health Store where you worked. We are grateful for the times we did have together. My dad Ed Sweeton would have been happy to know that we had the happy times together. Much love and healing, Cindy Sweeton Holden, Dick and Anna
Our families were good friends when we were young, and we still remember Patrick, Grady, and their father George very fondly. I am sorry for your loss and my deepest sympathies to Gladys and Patrick's wife and family.
I was deeply saddened to hear of this. Patrick was a very special friend to all of us. I have the fondest memories of him, as well as Grady. To think they are together again is the only comforting thought I could come up with. My heartfelt condolences to all of his loving family...he was so special...
Pat and I hung out in highschool, joined the Coast Guard and went half way around the world together. Seen alot of things, done alot of things. Would do some again, some not. It's interesting the different turns our lives take. I'm sad those turns hadent intersected again. Lesson learned. I'm so sorry.
