    I could go on and on about Pat; but the most important thing that I remember him by was getting me started with our Care Center here at Hacienda and the many residents that have used our service because of him. Also,the time that was spent in order to get our defibulators installed at both our Clubhouses and the classes he held for us so we were able to help others in need. God Bless you,Pat

    To the family of Pat, I just want to let you know how much we all thought of Pat. Him and Shots both were quite an inspiration to us all. I met them about 3 years ago, they would always be at the Moose on Mondays and anytime they had dancing. They just loved to dance. They lived, loved and laughed. They were quite the pair. That kind of love doesn't come by to often. It was wonderful to see. Pat tried so hard to move on after Shots passing, I know it was hard for him. He talked about her and his family often. He loved you all so much. May you all find peace that they are now dancing together in heaven.

    May Pat be a peace now and be with his beloved Shots. He will be missed at Hacienda and there will be many "Pat" stories and laughs.

    My condolence to the family. Though you grieve at this time may you find peace in knowing that "death and pain" will soon be no more. Jesus promises also a time when "all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out."(John 5:28,29) Such a promise should give us comfort in knowing we will be reunited with our loved ones. May it bring you much comfort.
