As Patrick’s Aunt, but only 4 years older I grew up like more of a big sister to him. As the years passed. We became more than family. We became friends... good friends. He became a staple in my life. A constant if you will.... someone to sit with and talk about the good and bad. Safe ground. Holy ground!! I have spent the last 2 weeks crying when I am supposed to be sleeping.... but sleep doesn’t come. I try to picture his face in my mind. The smiling face... laughing face.... serious face.. all sides of Pat I try to bring into a picture in my head to bring comfort.... yet nothing comes. Too soon maybe. My mind is full of stories and my heart is full of love for a lifetime of moments that are more valuable than diamonds or gold. I guess one of my favorite memories from about 20 years ago or so.... in the midst of my crazy divorce.... I found myself broke... and being proud... told no one but just held it together with spit and glue. One afternoon Pat came to me and put a couple hundreds in my hand. I near through it on the floor while telling him I don’t borrow I’m good. He said it’s not FOR YOU. It’s for Jes and Alex. Buy them coats winters coming. I thanked him with simple words but my heart never forgot how he managed to let me keep my pride and help at the same time!!!I will miss my nephew my friend my brother all the days of my life. Some day soon I hope to fall asleep picturing the happy laughing Patrick on the Fourth of July setting of fireworks and cheering like a little kid like he is seeing them for the first time. I miss you Pat and love you.... tell your Mom and Grandma and Grandpa I say hi... keep watch over all of us. We will need you and your prayers and guidance from heaven ❤️

In the short time I knew Pat, I saw his passion. Passion for his family. He showed pictures. He told his story. He spoke about his wife. His kids. He talked about how much he loved them, how proud he was of them. Passion for his work. Pat loved to get things done. Challenges were seen as opportunities to deliver. He wanted to do well. Not for personal glory but because it was the right way to behave. Do your best in everything. Passion for his country. Hearing him talk about 911 was chilling and inspirational. Passion for learning and experiencing new things. Spending time with him in Spain is something I’ll never forget. He was so curious about the people, the culture, the food. He told me he wanted to find out “what makes Barcelona tick” Passion for a laugh. One night at dinner Pat and I spent hours telling old hub stories, each one he told somehow ended with a punchline. He loved to make people laugh. I wish I knew longer.
