Patrick was a gentle, quiet man with a big brain and a lot of tenderness. He loved to tell corny jokes and tickle the kids at bedtime to make them more awake than sleepy. He married me at 22 years old and passed at 26 after becoming a father to both a daughter and a son. We miss him: the kids miss their dad and I miss the love. He will always be remembered, and even part of him alive, with every memory and every breath we have and we take in his name.
