Tell Us About Them:

Pat was a kind and wonderful person. He loved his family. One of his biggest wishes was to make people smile... and he was always making people laugh. Even through his struggles he did all he could to help those he loved.


Tell Us About Their Struggles With Addiction:

Pat got addicted to pain killers that were prescribed to him for an on-going knee problem. He had knee problems since he was in high school. When the prescriptions ran out he turned to heroin. All of a sudden he was a different person on the outside. Three years later he found himself without a job, divorced, in and out of rehab, in and out of jail, and more than anything he was horribly disappointed in what had become of his life. He was afraid that the people he loved no longer loved him because of the decisions that he had made.


What Made Them Smile?

His son, his niece and nephew, animals, the Giants winning, the sunshine, and making others laugh.


What Do You Miss the Most About Them?

His goofy laugh, his big hugs, his beautiful eyes, his crazy thumbs, how he said "beez" instead of "because" as a kid. I miss the future we didn't get to live together yet.


If You Had a Chance to Say One More Thing to Your Angel What Would It Be?

Of course I would tell him how much he is loved. But I would also apologize to him for not knowing how to handle his addiction. Never knowing what was the right thing to do... to say... to feel. And that I will miss him every single minute of everyday, until I see him again.
