Pat, you and Ray Stevens were my heroes. You were an artist in the ring, an artist on the mic, and I wish I had known you. I will always remember your run in the San Francisco territory. I got to shake your hand in Santa Rosa after your match. No one, but absolutely no one, could work a crowd like you did. Everything you did was so believable. And I truly admire the fact that you could be openly gay in the time and era you did, and in the profession you were in. Bless you, Pat. I will always remember you fondly.
