Karen, I was so saddened to hear of Pat's passing. I will never forget his dedication to his job. He came after hours so we could pour concrete at the Firehall. He always went out of his way for us and I really appreciated that. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family at this time. Take care.

It seems like only 10 years ago Pat and I were playing basketball and football on the Grant School playground and water skiing 4 or 5 times a week on Lake Kampeska. We didn't get a chance to go pheasant hunting like we talked about at your birthday party in September.....we'll hunt later. Spade says there is no limit where you're at now. I'll bring extra shells. Pat had a lot of energy. Spade said Pat got more done by 9am than most of us get done all day. I believe it. I'm going to miss my grade school and high school buddy and most recently just afriend to talk to. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family.

I am so sorry for your loss. My prayers are with all of you during this difficult time. I remember Pat coming out to the farm to pheasant hunt one time. He stopped to say "hi" and had a big smile on his face. Just know in your hearts that Pat is no longer in pain and will spending the coming holiday with the Lord. Please let me know if there is anything at all that I can do for you.
