Our families were neighbors for many years and I still recall the happy times we shared as I was growing up in your back yard. I will never forget admiring Pat as he rode the horses that he loved so much. Our deepest sympathies to you all and may he rest in peace.

  7. Pat was a wonderful friend to my dad, Eddie. They worked together for many years at Blakeslee Prestress. They both had a love for horses, and Dad always shared Pat\’s stories with me. May he RIP and may his family find comfort in the beautiful memories he has left behind. With deepest sympathy,
