My heart goes out to Pats Family at this time of loss and sadnesss. Pat was an Amazing man , he was funny with all his jokes and loving and compassionate to everyone. He loved feeding the birds and helping anyone in need of prayer or a kind word. Pat made you feel like you were his favorite. I’m so happy to have met him at the Villa and to have known him and considered him a good friend. Pat you will be missed but I know you are with your lovely wife Betty and you are at peace. Love you so much❤️Angel greenhalge ( Villa Staff)
