Not sure what to say?

Patrick we miss you more than you could know. Your saying....Don't fear death, fear never having lived!!

Dear Jim and Kelly
I posted in August but wanted you to know I have been thinking of your son again. My 93 year old father passed over the holidays and it brought Patty back into my mind. You don't know me, but I am Moe Herbert's wife. I helped Moe run the RMVMC for several years. I spent most of my time in the truck doing the computer scoring. When I got the chance would watch some of the races. I always kept my eye out for the fast racers and Patty was one of them for sure. He...

May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow. Stay Strong, Jim.

I was lucky enough to know Patty for a winter percussion season, his last one and my first. I joined just after the season had started, didn't know anybody or anything, and was at a complete loss for a long time. At least, until I hopped up on the truck and said I'm here to help, and proved that I was worth keeping up there. After just a few times helping out with the truck, I was named Patty's second in command. We were always laughing and joking around with each other on the truck, and I...

My sweet boy Patty,

We miss you more than you could ever know. You will be in our hearts forever. Nothing will ever be the same and some days are so very hard. I miss your text messages about all your adventures, mishaps, observations, and just plain silly stuff.

We will love you forever and even longer.

Mom

To the Marchbank Family,
Steve, the boys and I didn't know Patrick personally but we always seen him across the road always hanging out with his church family! I believe the kids came across the road to help me out with something! Your son, Patrick seemed like he was a wonderful kid and was very liked! God gained another angel in Heaven and he definitely touched many lives on Earth! I am so sorry for your loss! Your Angel in Heaven is watching over you!

I remember the first conversation Patrick and I ever had..... Patrick: Um you with the sunglasses ya I like the sunglasses Me: turns around and looks at him noticing he had the same purple sunglasses as me and I said "well I guess that makes us automatically best friends doesn't it? Patrick: I'm not complaining
That right there is how patrick and I became friends... we've been friends ever since and have so many crazy memories and times together... I miss him like crazy and days...

I mostly knew Patrick from a distance, having watched him grow up in BFC. He was always a really spirited kid and I loved his sense of adventure. I got to know him a bit better his senior year of high school, watching him at band competitions, taking senior photos, and other events we had in common. He was always polite and respectful to me and others, very driven, passionate, dedicated. My first thought when I think of Patty is "larger than life". I can't believe he isn't here on...

Patty was truly a light among his friends. His loss was felt deeply, but I take so much comfort knowing that he is in the Lord's hands now and is smiling down on your beautiful family. I pray for you every night and hope that your lives continue to bless others.
