Patrick Daniel O'Brien

Sailing Through A Third of a Century

We had a 3rd of a century together, sailing the many seas
Some were rough and windy, some we sailed with ease

We hoisted our sails and dropped anchor in many ports
Enjoying life and having fun on all our favorite shores.

Our family and friends grew and filled our sails throughout the years,
with many oceans of happiness and a few sad seas of tears

Suddenly Pat's ship of strength was ravaged with his pain
And though we prayed it would recover, it would never sail again

When my captain could not return for a life he would have loved
I had to let his spirit go, to sail the seas above.
So I told him I would release him, to sail the great beyond
And though we're apart on earth, there will always be that bond.

And someday we'll all meet again as whitecaps in the sea
Without the pain & challenges, our spirits will be free

Love you and miss you so very much.

A very dedicated statesman who defended his country and for years worked to better his community. His legacy will live on forever. We can't thank you enough O'Brien family for sharing your treasure with us. Hugs to you all!

Pat was a very kind and a true renaissance man. The pictures speak a thousand words.

Very sad to hear of his sudden passing. I know he loved his family and my prayers are for them.

I have known Pat for many years and really liked him. He was a kind man, very involved with his family and community. He was just elected again to serve on our neighborhood council but it wasn't meant to be. I'm so sorry he didn't have more time to spend with us.
