To Jon, Pat’s wife, his kids, and the rest of the O’Brien family, I want to express my deepest sympathy. Pat was such an upbeat inspiration to everyone he met. He overcame challenges such as his run in with the school bus, and bounded back. He was a dentist all his patients loved and trusted. Even after moving out of the area, patients like me would drive back to Grand Rapids because we knew Pat and the entire O’Brien team would take good care of us. I have fond memories of Pat singing songs while he worked or talking about the latest CD of Christmas music he had acquired. He loved to share his about his children and their latest adventure, especially when he was soon to be heading west to join one of them. He will be missed. My prayers are for your family and the O’Brien Dentistry team.
