God, grant us the serenity to accept the things we can not change, courage to change things we can and the wisdom to know the difference.
Rest in Sweet Peace

It is so hard to put into words what we are feeling this week after getting that early Monday morning phone call. Even though we knew his time was limited, our hearts were not prepared for the reality in knowing that the time had come. Losing someone you have loved as a brother for more than half of your life is hard. But knowing how hard it is for you, Sean, Mary Lane and most of all Pam to lose another brother so early is beyond words. Alan and I are wrapping our arms around you now and in the coming days and weeks to love and support you. We will always remember Pat with that great smile and sense of humor. Always an “I love you” when ever we saw each other. So many stories, so many memories. I’m sure we will laugh and cry alot and remember all those that are with him in heaven now. Wow! What a party! God Bless you All! Adam, Steven, Rita. Remember the good times. Your Dad loved you so much❤️❤️❤️
