Pat, David, Deb and the whole family, I was just heartbroken when I heard the news of your loss. He was an ornery guy who I miss already, with a joke or two to tell. We always had some good conversations when he got that "mop" cut weather it was sports or just life. I truly miss him, he was one of my favorites, that's for sure. You all are in my thoughts and prayers.
