Pat and I were friends for many years. We laughed, we had adventures, we survived the Disco Era! His family made me feel welcomed at every holiday dinner. He is a part of some of my best memories. We lost touch after I moved back to Pennsylvania, although we did speak by phone a few years back. I don't know what made me google his name yesterday; I'm both glad and sorry that I did. My deepest sympathy goes out to all of his family, but I know they, just like I, have a wealth of happy memories to treasure.
