  1. Pat was a beautiful spirit. You meet few people in your life where you just ‘click’ with someone. I was fortunate enough for Pat to be one of those people for me. We saw each other rarely but were always able to pick up right where we left off. Our mutual love of languages and Fred Astaire was always good fodder for stories. I love you, Pat! Jack, there are no words for what you are experiencing, but I pray all of the happiness you share will carry you through. Love you, too!
