I will miss you Patrick even though we have not seen each other in years. You were always special to me and I know how much you loved my dear friend Jodi.

Sending love and comfort to Patrick's beloved wife Jodi and the rest of the family. I wish his last days had been less difficult but he had a good life full of fun and laughter. I remember when I visited Jodi and Patrick years ago he was a fantastic host, showing me the best of the Dallas-Ft.Worth area. He was the first real Texan I ever knew and I'll never forget him. I bet he is up there now showing St. Peter how to cook the best steaks ever!

Sunshine I sure am going to miss you. You taught me many things like how to make pea salad how to use your tools. You were a gentle giant. What I miss most is us laughing. It was a pleasure working with you my dear friend.
