    I feel honored and blessed to have Pat in my life the last few years. He always had a helping hand no matter what. I can’t even express how much I will miss him. We always joked that he was my rent-a-husband as he was always helping me and Remi, my son, out. He did everything from decorating Christmas trees to picking Remi up from daycare. I am so sorry for your great loss and know that he will be watching over all of us at peace with God. Take Care.
