Welcome to our CaringBridge site. We've created it to keep friends and family updated. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement during this time when it matters most. We know there are a lot of questions and curiosity and we would like to answer them here to the best of our ability. Pat is known for his enthusiastic "extended" bouts of conversation but its probably not the time to encourage his favorite method of discourse due to his esophageal issues. Lets let the conversations evolve naturally - at Pat's pace. He won't be shy. Thanks.
