My Uncle Pat and I reconnected on Facebook 4 years ago. I hadn’t seen him or Tracy since I was a teenager. What a kind man with a wicked sense of humor. Last year my Mom (Mary his sis) had a surprise 80th Birthday in Houston. Uncle Pat, Tracy and Chris were the first ones to respond YES! It was so good to see his wonderful smile and having a great time. He’s was a Great Uncle who raised a wonderful daughter. Rest In Peace Uncle Pat. I’m sure your making a lot of people laugh!
