My home room buddy during our Bulkeley years. Always a smile and a great laugh. I was hoping to see him at our reunion. My sincere sympathy to his family. Class of 69.

Praying for all the family! I truly know your pain Fran, as you and Patrick knew when you came to the memorial for Tom and surprised me! I wish I could be there for you, but I am in NC and no longer going to PA. Sending love, hugs and wishes for God to bless you and your family.

I think Pat would like a tree planted in his memory. It was obvious he cared about people and the world we live in.
