    I just need to express my dearest regret n sympathy in the loss of Pat. Not only was he a tall man in stature he was a huge man in business n in the community of Forest. He would give anyone the shirt off of his back. When others in the community turned their backs on others, Pat didn’t care what others thought. He treated everyone he encountered w dignity and respect.

    Others would do well to take a lesson from him. Pat always shared a kind word n smile. The last time I saw him he shared his concerns with me over his beloved daughter Shannon and her health. We talked about her dog and how the dog tried to “eat” him. We also laughed about and shared stories of my grandfather his his father in law..

    When others treated me poorly when I retured to Ohio. Pat never dud. I will always remember him with great fondness. Pat RIP my friend. Kymberli
