Not sure what to say?

Time moves along so fast from childhood to adulthood to our passing through life. Time is worth more than anything when shared with great people like yourself. It was good to know you Pat and everyone who knew you is better off through life. Much love to you and your family. You will be missed and always be remembered in good light!

My memories of Pat are very positive and we shared much laughs and tomfoolery together at a time of my youth when I really needed it. I am a happier man now for having known him.

I was deeply saddened to hear about Pat's passing. My thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends. I met Pat way back in elementary school and he was always a nice and caring person. Although I lost track of him after high school I always remember his great smile and sense a humor. I know he touched a lot of lives. May he rest in peace. God bless you.

To Dan and Sue & the Began family,
The news of Patrick's passing finaly
trickled down to us. We are so sorry
for your loss. You are all in our
prayers and we know that the wonderful
memories of him will carry you through
this most difficult time.
God Bless all of you.

Some of my fondest memories are from childhood birthday parties in our old neighborhood. He was a sweet and funny person even at age 6. So sorry to lose track of him after college. A blessing on his family during this time of grief.

To Family and Friends of Patrick, I learned today of your tragic loss and am shaking with grief. It's been many years since seeing most of you, yet I want you to know how highly I've always thought of Patrick, and how I, the world, and most of all, you will miss him. My torn heart is with you.

To all the Began family,

Although I didn't know Pat personally, I knew his brother Andrew...he was my former tennis teacher. I am so very sorry to hear of Pat's passing. May God comfort all of you in your sorrow and bring Pat into the light of His Presence. You all remain in my prayers and thoughts.

Sandy, Jack, Charlie, Lichtenberg and Began families...we were so sorry to hear about Patrick. May the love of family and friends comfort you during this difficult time. You are in our thoughts and prayers.

Blessings and hugs,
Jack and Kay

My deepest sympathy to you and your family. May you find strength through your sons and peace in your good memories.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to you.
