Jimi, my heart breaks for you, your mom and your grandparents and aunts and uncles! You were a funny and great kid when I got to know you. I remember us watching movies - Norbit with Eddie Murphy I vividly remember you laughing about all of the silly jokes. We had fun with Nerf guns and it was a pleasure watching you play at school basketball tournaments. I pray that our Lord welcomes you in Heaven and that one day you will be reunited with all your loved ones! Love and Peace, sweet Prince!

Dear Karin..remembering the times at work we always spoke of our sons and how proud they made us have been my thoughts daily. You spoke of Jimi with a big smile always and I know how much you love him, and how being his mom made you so happy. I'm so deeply sorry for the loss of your beautiful boy. You are in my thoughts and prayers every day. Continue to smile Karin when you think of Jimi, he will always be with you and in the hearts of all those he touched in his young life.

I never knew Jimi but it is clear that he was a young man of outstanding qualities. From the first time I heard about this terrible crime it was Jimi Taro Patrick that touched me the most. Anyone should have been honored to call him friend, brother, son. Peace to all who knew and loved him. Rest well Jimi, resurrection is coming...

As a member of the community a parent and a mother my heart felt sympathy goes out to The family of Jimi. Never met Jimmy I feel proud of his accomplishments in his short life and the world was certainly a better place with him in it .I don't think any of us will ever get over this. And hope and prayer that your legacy will continue to live on that it will motivate all of us to do better and try harder to reach out to one another in need . With deepest sadness and sympathy in prayer Carole Wall

Grieving with you in Doylestown. Rest In Peace Jimi.


Do not stand at my grave and weep;
I am not there. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight in ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain
When you awaken in the morning's hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
of quiet birds circled in flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry;
I am not there. I did not die.

Rudyard Kipling

Keep strong.

I did not have the pleasure of knowing this accomplished young man, but I have been touched by his story, as have so many across the nation. Thank you for sharing your memories of Jimi, it is clear that you have so much to be proud of and I pray you may find comfort from the time you shared.

His picture struck me from the first time I saw it - Jimi resembles my own godson so very much...
