Not sure what to say?

For all who wrote such kind words to our family on the loss of our brother, Pat. Thank you. We are deeply touched and comforted by your words.
The word gentle was often repeated in describing Pat, and gentle he was. He was a gentleman in every sense of the word.
He touched more lives than he would ever acknowledge, more good done than he would ever mention. He was never one to call attention to himself.
He has touched our lives and we are better for having loved and known...

To the Dentino and O'Donnell families, My sincere sympathy on the passing of your loved one. I did not know Pat personally, but know some of his wonderful family from the Italian American Society. May he rest in peace.

I was so sorry to hear about Pat. I have so many great memories of being with Verne and Pat--dancing recitals, elementary school, and high school. We had a lot of good times going places in that black car. He was such a nice guy.

To the Dentino and O'Donnell families, my sincere sympathy on the passing of your loved one. I will keep all of you in my thoughts and prayers.

Pat was a character. He really knew how to enjoy life. I'm sure he will also be missed terribly at Tyroni's and Steak n Shake--their loss more than his. He taught me one thing: leave the vacuum cleaner in clear view for visitors so it looks like I'm always cleaning. Thanks Pat.

We just returne home and heard of Vernon's passing. May God be with you all during this most difficult of times and please know that your are in our thoughts and prayers.

Just happened to be in Peoria Monday and heard about Pat's death. I was so saddened by this news and sorry. I have very fond memories of us performing in theatre and dancing. At one of our high school reunions years ago, Verne, Pat and I were out there dancing and enjoying ourselves! My thoughts and prayers are with him and his family.

My sympathy & prayers go out to the family of "Pat" Dentino.
