May God give you...
For every storm, a rainbow,
for every tear, a smile,
for every care, a promise,
And a blessing in each trail.
For every problem life sends,
a faithful friend to share,
for every sigh, a sweet song,
And an answer,
for each prayer.

My Thoughts and prayers are with all of Pat's Family. I am so sad to hear of his passing. I met Pat in Parnell through my Best friend Cracker in the early 80's. I lived him so much. He was always friendly, happy, & had a constant smile on his face. I can not say enough good things about this special man. I know he will be so greatly missed by all who knew him.

Hours before your death, you teared up as you talked about you one true love, Lynette. Now you will forever be with her.
To my dear cousin, Patrick...may your gentle heart , your strong spirit, and your deep love of family always be an example to us of how a person should live their lives. Your smile would light up a room, your laughter would echo joy to all of us...may you enjoy eternity in the arms of your loved ones who greeted you at the gates of Heaven. Love you...
