As we go
through old photos we can see all the fantastic things Pat taught us, all
the "stuff" he built or designed including tons of help over the years with the
sheep herding and the dogs.
the pictures we get to see Maddy's cheeky little smile perched behind Pat on the
back of a snow machine when she was just 3 years old, fishing with Pat at the
trout pond, printing and learning math with Pat, beaming at his handiwork when
he built the kick-sleds and the agility equipment and there are so many more
good things to note. It has been wonderful to have known him. We are very
sad but wanted to share a bit of how we felt, and we are so glad he spent the
last few weeks with friends and family and got to become close to everyone who
mattered most in his life. He spent almost every one of those weekends skating,
playing cards and goofing off with Madison just before the accident that took
him from us.
You may be
gone from this earth Pat but you will always be here, buried deep within our
hearts and memories.
Tanya & Madison
Don't think of him as gone
away, his journey's just begun,
life holds so many facets, this earth is only one.
Just think of him as
resting, from the sorrows and the tears
in a place of warmth and comfort, where there are no days and years.
Think how he must be
wishing, that we could know today
how nothing but our sadness, can really pass away.
And think of him as living,
in the hearts of those he touched
For nothing loved is ever lost, and he was loved so much.
