Rest In Peace cousin Pat. We never got to spend much time together as kids, but I do have solid memories of those times. Seeing Pat at my sister's, Binnie, house a few years ago, gave us time to talk and get reacquainted. I truly enjoyed that visit.

Patrick was always a favorite cousin. We were always glad to see each other and share some laughs and love. He is a treasure I will cherish for the rest of my life. He loved his family and wanted good things for them always. And...his family loved him and provided him with the stability, comfort, and care that he needed and valued. Love to you all. Binnie
