Guest Book

Not sure what to say?

Thought about you today, but that is nothing new. I thought about you yesterday, and days before that too. I think of you in silence, I often speak your name. All I have are memories and a picture in a frame. Your memory is a keepsake from which I'll never part. God has you in his arms..... I have you in my heart

One of my fondest moments with my Uncle Pat was catching my first football at age 4. He threw it and I caught it. He yelled " She caught the ball, Bunk!" He'll live on in our hearts forever. Marla aka Jayney/Butchy

I had my first slow dance with Uncle Pete. I remember standing on his shoes while we danced. It's one of my fondest memories. He and Grandpa are up there right now watching over us all.

Pat & I were good friends at Coal Creek Central. I remember the time we slept in the trunk of my sister's 60 Plymouth at Shaffer lake in the pouring down rain because our trailer had no more sleeping room. My deepest condolences to your family.

As a former classmate and friend of Pat's at Coal Creek Central, I remember him well and send condolences to his family.

Love always and miss you very much Uncle Pete

You are all in our thoughts & prayers.
