Dear Angela & John,

I am so sorry for your loss. Pat was an acquaintance of mine for 40+ years, having met him when we were both going to U.B. law school. I always thought that if he wasn't a policeman &/or an attorney, he should have been a priest/minister, as he was the nicest, sweetest guy I think I have ever met! I believe he is already in heaven, as I doubt there was anything he has ever done that would warrant any time in purgatory. :)

We were in the police academy together (1978) and
then law student buddies (early 80s). Angela, I am so
very sorry for your loss. Pat was as honest and most
straight shooter as I have ever met. RIP my good friend.

Angela & John, I can't express how sad I am for your loss of Pat... he was one of the good guys & a no nonsense guy. I referred him to so many of my realtor clients with all good reviews. He was pretty matter of fact when he told me of his cancer..., RIP Pat & watch over your family. Prayers from Jeanette & Wayne Krieger
