We are so sorry for your loss. We always enjoyed our times sharing drinks and playing bar draws with you two. Of course you won most of them and well deserved.

We haven't seen much of you this year because of Mikes position at the Moose and me being busy with my daughters illness.

Pat will be missed by many...GOD BLESS HIS FAMILY.
