Dear Barbara,

I was very saddened to learn of Pat's passing in this months FLEXO Magazine.

Pat and I worked together a few times while he with BFG, APR and then on his own and I always enjoyed seeing him and reminiscing at FTA Forums.

Please accept my deepest sympathies and extend them to your family [which he spoke of frequently].

Regards

Life was not without turmoil for each of us as we faced the many
challenges of the work place, loss of loved ones and illnesses to our
families. Pat's strength was championed by his inward desire to be the
best he could be, and to help others in their time of woe.

God lends us our friends, our parents and our families to hold and
cherish in this life. When He takes them Home, He is not taking them
from us, but just bringing them Home to where they belong. Until we meet
again, Pat is enjoying his reward in Heaven and will certainly be
looking after each of us. What a reunion it will be when we all meet again.

Our love and sympathy are with you all,

May St Peter welcome you through the pearly gates before the Devil knows you're dead.

All my love. Forever in my thoughts and prayers.

I love you and miss you so much, Dad. You'll forever be my "Daddy-da" and my favorite Irishman. I'll forever be your baby girl, standing on your feet while dancing with you in the kitchen. I will keep those special memories close, until we meet again.

Dear Craven Family,
I went to grade school at St. Paul's and high school at Hoban with Pat. We lived two blocks away from each other growing up in Firestone Park. He was a good guy. He will be missed by all.
Respectfully submitted,

February 10, 2013
an irish poem from your cousin & brother.feel no guilt in laughter,he'd know how much you cared.feel no sorry in a smile that he he's not her to share.you cannot grieve forever;he would not want you to.he'd hope that you could carry on the way you always do,so talk abouth the good times & the way you showed you cared,the days you spent together,all the happiness you shared.let memories surround you,a word someone may say.will suddenly recapture a time,an hour, a day,that brings him back,as clearly as though he was still here.and fills you with the feeling that he is always near.for if you keep those moments,you'll never be apart.
February 10, 2013
I am so sorry to hear of your loss. Please know that I will be sending prayers to all of you and so wish I could be there for support. He will always be known to me and my family as Mr. Craven and I will not say goodbye just so long for awhile till we meet up with him again. All my love to all of your family.

Mr Craven,
I know it was only last Christmas since I've seen the family. You were my only father figure in my life growing up as a young child. Your kindness brought so much happiness to many peoples lives. Your family will always remain a huge part of my life and memories. I love you sir ! May you rest in peace.
February 09, 2013
My thoughts and prayers go out to the entire Craven family at this difficult time. Your father was always so sweet to me and took the time when I saw him to stop and chat and always ask about my family. He always made a point to make me feel the people around him feel special. This world will be at a loss without him and we could use a lot more people like him. Keep your memories in your hearts and know that he is always with you and has touched so many lives.

February 09, 2013
A friendly person who knew no strangers. All who spoke with Pat were instant friends. Pat and I know each other from our St.Paul's and Hoban days. I lost my connection as time passed but recently were reconected by the St.Paul's facebook.. I noticed immediatly that he hadn't changed. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him. Barb, words can't adequately summon the grief and sadnees. I am praying that you find consolance in Pat's love he had for you and your children.
February 09, 2013
So sorry for your loss. Thoughts and prayers with you.

Please accept my deepest sympathy on the loss of Pat. I was a classmate of his at Hoban High School. He was very friendly and so much fun to be around. I last saw him at our 30th reunion and so much wish I would have stay in-touch with him. Pat was really a neat “guy”.

Im gonna miss you always coming over to my parents house in the summer to visit and how you would always kiss me on the cheek. U will be greatly missed. Prayers to the Craven family.
February 09, 2013
Pat Craven was my Youth Football Coach in 1987 and 1988. He had a natural gift of teachinig kids. He taught us a lot about football and he always made things fun. Each year he made a point that we would learn a lot about life. We did. The biggest lesson I learned from Coach Craven was that the true heroes of our country are the people like him who invest in building stronger communities by teaching the young ones. As an adult I appreciate more and more that I was blessed enough to have wonderful people in my life such as Pat Craven who dedicated so much of his time and talents. I pray for his family and I hope they realize that he touched many lives in a positive way.
February 09, 2013
Mike, Colleen, and the rest of the Craven family, my thoughts and prayers are with you. God Bless.
February 09, 2013
To Tim and Sheri and the whole family my prayers are with you,and may your many memories keep you strong in this time of grief.
