Memories Timeline


  1. Pat was always a friendly compassionate friend. Many years ago, while I was going through some hard times, he sold me an insurance policy that would accommodate my needs. He never tried to sell me more than I could afford. I’ve always appreciated the concern, interest, care and understanding he had for others. God bless his family. RIP Pat.
