I was thinking of you and your wife Pat today. I "borrowed" and paraphrased her poem to you in "Carrying the Fire" to send to my wife, at the time, named Pat, when I had a chance to flybackseat in a T33 A Trainer. I was saddened to hear of your Pat's passing.

I hope you had a great moon landing anniversary.

My dear friend Ellie and brother John, husband Michael and daughters and the rest of your wonderful family I extend my deepest sympathy to you at this time. She was so much fun and I remember her zest for life and the good fun we had back in the early 1990's in Naples with sister Ellie and I remember that beautiful Irish clan being so very close, loving and caring of one another. It was a pleasure to have known her.
