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.

Dear Mare - We are so sorry and deeply saddened over the loss of Patrick. It was always a pleasure to be in his company and we will miss him. His contageous smile and sparkling eyes will always be remembered. Our hearts are with you and all of the family. Love, Nan and Bill.
Pat was one of my best friends growing up. He and his dad and brother taught me how to ski. Regret losing track over the years. By kindest regards to family and friends that are celebrating Pat's life.
You and Pat have been the sweetest of sweeties, we will miss Pat and always remember his kind heart and loving ways. The photos are a blessing to see, thank you for sharing them on-line.
Pat had a good sense of humor, he smiled with his whole face, eyes included, contageous laugh, and of course a nice haircut. It's been quite a few years, but he was one of those people that makes ya smile thinking about him. Bless ya Mary, and family.
May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.
I was blessed to meet Patrick for the first time at "Gramps" Diters 90th birthday. He was very kind and gentle- a special trait laced through all the Diters men I know. I spent one very nice night on the phone with him while he was in the hospital not long ago. He will be sorely missed and has touched many hearts! My Best to you, Glady and the rest of the family. All my Love, Laura Diters
Mary, I'm thiniking of you and missing Patrick. I'm sorry I won't be able to come with John to Patrick's memorial service, but I'll be there in spirit. Love to you, to Gladdy, and to your family and Patrick's.
My Dear Sister,
Steve and I are so very sorry for the loss of Patrick. We will miss our 'double' dates on Saturdays; little celebrations on our birthdays; going boating and many other times together. We loved him dearly and will miss his great sense of silliness. Blessings Mary. Love, Pat and Steve
Even though you do not know me, I remember Patrick very well from our class. He always had a smile and was a funny guy. It is so sad to hear of another great person from our class gone. My sincere sympathy goes out to you and your family.
Thank you for your service.
We are so sorry for your loss.

Patrick was a great friend during our school years. You could always count on him for a smile and a good laugh. Kind hearted and a friend to everyone. I am very sorry to hear this sad news.
Mary and Gladdy and Diters family, I am so sorry for the loss of such a good, kind, spunky man with a beautiful smile, a big mustache and always a twinkle in those beautiful blue eyes.I hope I never forget the sound of his laugh. He was a real treasure.
May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.
Dear Mary and Aunt Gladys,
Our sincere condolences on Pat's passing. I still remember his helping me overcome my fear of the rope swing and Grandma and Grandpa Humphrey's house way back when.

Dear Gladys and Mary,
I am so sorry for your loss. You are in my thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.
I am so sorry for your loss. Please know you are in my thoughts. Hug Hug.
I had the pleasure of Pats company on several late night water emergencies. He made light of the circumstances and I always left with a smile on my face. He was a great guy, hard hard worker and I will miss him very much.
Dear Mary and Gladdie, Jack and I are so sorry for your loss. Our thoughts are with you and your family. We both think of Pat's grin and twinkling eyes and I always giggle when remembering him. Good memories from high school of him. May the memories help you through your grief.
