My sympathy to Patrick's family. I am grateful for his gentle spirit and his willingness to share the blessings of his gift of song for the upbuilding of our faith community. May he rest lovingly in the presence of our Creator. Pat will be missed by many, but his Spirit is alive in the hearts of those who knew him.

My heart goes out to all of you. I offer you my Sincere Sympathy. I stopped for a few minutes a couple of weeks ago and remember his beautiful smile. He held my hand for a while. He was such a beautiful man. He can now sing with the angels in Heaven. Joan

We only had the honour of meeting Pat once at his brother Kevin and my sister Charlene’s wedding in Palmer Alaska. He was a very nice man and had a very gentle and wonderful spirit about him. Our condolences and prayers go to the family. He sure was a nice guy!
