Rita, we are still in shock over Pats passing. He was such a special person to our family. He was as sweet and kind a man as we've ever known and we are truly going to miss him. Wyatt will never forget Pat taking us for a ride in the pontoon boat a couple of years ago. I just know that he is chatting away right now with someone up in Heaven. We love you both and are here for you in any way that we can help. God bless you.
