Many Many great memories, 23rd street, football Saturdays, “helping” with some project Pat was working on at Anderson Dr. Pat trying to get me to know how to figure out what “X” was. He taught me many things.
I’m so sad for you all, you are in my thoughts.

Jo, Jeff and Ann
I’m saddened to hear about Pat.
All the great memories came back to me when we all lived on 23rd St. What you and Pat called “small town living in the neighborhood!” I remembered the Math tutoring on your kitchen table sharing with the newly hatched chickens and Pat smoking his pipe, and shaking his head regarding Geometry!(Never really got it!) My favorite quote “Time cannot steal the treasures that we share with each other” Our memories are priceless. My deepest sympathy.
Blessing to you and your family.
