How I so miss you Dr. Patt. May you rest in peace..
I miss you Richard. The world that kept us so connected kept us apart. I just learned you left this world. I am speaking to you Richard. Thank you for all you shared and the opportunities you gave me. I cherish even more the copy of your book you allowed me to write a chapter in. Ironically, Cancer Pain Management. So strange we are both afflicted with that horrible disease we fought so hard against. Yes I am writing in the present tense as your great spirit and soul still live within my essence. I will never forget the ASA meeting when everyone was so stuffy and full of themselves. You and Dave Longmire took the band's instruments at the Marriott in New Orleans and jammed. it was such a great human moment. Always proud to know you. I love you Bro. David
