So sad to hear. I remember when we were very small coming to the house when they lived in the cities. We caught fireflies and placed them in mason jars. My sister Cindy, could have been no more than 2 or 3. I also remember staying in the house attached to the liquor store. How we got so many people in that tiny place was amazing! Pat always had a smile and a great sense of humor. Take care. Julie
