A few months has passed, as if just days. Moral support from family and close friends, are still essential for healing. Lasting comfort and support comes from God, he says “‘For I well know the thoughts that I am thinking toward you, thoughts of peace, and not of calamity, to give you a future and a hope. (Jeremiah 29:11) Please reflect on his concern for you, and my condolence."
"My heartfelt condolences to Pat's family. He was the most kind, loving, funny person I have ever met. He and Sharon shared a love and a bond so strong that it lasted through all adversity. It was a rare and wonderful thing to see. Their time together was cut too short."
"Pat was one a very loving and caring man. I had the honor of getting to know him . When Pat and Sharon , lived in Cartersville, Ga. My husband and I got to know them really well. We both thought a lot of Pat. He was easy to love. Lots of fun to be around. R.I.P. Pat no more pain. Sharon, you and the girls are in my thoughts and prayers. Love you Sharon!"
"I had the honor to know Pat and no one could ask for a kinder man. Pat was a man's man in every aspect from loving his family to making friends feel like family. He will be missed but always thought of with love."
"My sweet handsome cousin. I will always remember how cool I always thought you were. So handsome & sweet. Your smile would light up the darkest of rooms. You inherited your fathers charm. I find great comfort knowing you are reunited with the best family EVER!! I love you Pat ❤️ Until we meet again sweet cousin."
"You were my first nephew and will always be my favorite. I remember the night you baby sit for me and when we returned home the boys were in bed asleep, all the lights were on and you were gone. You thought we had come home so you went home and you were in bed when I called. Of course you were forgiven, but your mother was very upset. I will forever miss your beautiful blue eyes with the long eye lashes. I know you are in a better place but I'm sure going to miss you."
"The first time we meet Pat And Sharon we had them for a traditional Italian dinner to our restaurant. We enjoyed several glasses of Vinnie's homemade wine, everyone was enjoying themselves at One point we had started a conversation where we had Michael and Amber Married,their wedding completely planned out and moved on picking out the names of all the children they were to have, I think at one point we decided they were having twins. We have had wonderful memories over the years, marriage of our children, the births of our grandchildren, Christmas, Thanksgiving, Easter, Many Birthday's,trick or treating with the grandchildren or just Sunday dinners at Michael and Amber's!! Pat was a wonderful family man and a wonderful friend! He will be missed."
"I remember when Pat was young, he used to come over to our house with all the neighborhood kids and play hide and seek in the evening. They had so much fun. He was a special boy.
"Unfortunately, I did not know Pat when he was in his prime. But, in the time I was able to spend with him he had more passion and presence then anyone I have ever met."
"My condolences to the family,he was a very nice,man willing to help everyone, he will be greatly missed,I was a neighbor, friend for years ,have thought if the family many times over the years,prayers for the family!"
"Rest in peace, Patrick"
