Jo, family, friends and associates. I was saddened to hear the news of Pats passing if its any comfort to you Jo I have fond memories of sitting reminiscing with Pat in Holstein and on the patio in Mount Forest I know he would get angry that his body could not keep up with his sharp, and bright intelligent brain, but we had fine discussions and many laughs. We fought and competed in the in the Seventies. I nearly worked for Pat in the Eighties We mellowed in the Nineties We became great friends in the Two thousands. I am sure you will hear he is in a better place Jo but he is not here enjoying one of your sandwiches, of which we shared a few. May God bless you and comfort you at this difficult time. Please stay in touch. Your friends Mike and Carolyn Kellie

Grandpa Pat was such a great and fun man to be around. I have so many memories on the farm with him and Nanna Jo that I will hold dear. Most of all, I will always feel blessed that Pat loved and treated me as one of the family. He always had a smile and a joke for the day. Sherilyn and I were always eager to hear his stories and we fell for them every time !! All my love to the family, JODY

Dear Jo and Family, Please know that Derrell and I will have you in our thoughts and prayers during this sad time. We know that no matter how painful the days might have been, it is so hard to lose someone you love. I am so glad we both got to visit the two of you and ride horses in the woods with Pat. When I spoke with Pat at Christmas, he said we'd meet again one day. See you then, Pat. Love, Carmen and Derrell.

— Carmen and Derrell Rogers, April 11, 2008

We are truly saddened by the loss of such a wonderful man. We will always cherish the memories of Uncle Pat's loving smile and warm personality. It was so nice that whenever we talked to him he took a genuine interest in everything that our family was involved in. His kind generosity toward everyone is a perfect example of how we can affectionately remember him. It makes us laugh to know that Great Gramma is making him sit down for a card game right now. Rest in peace Uncle Pat, we will always hold you close to our hearts.

Dear Jo I am very sorry for your loose. I know it has been tough for you these last couple of years. I know you miss him and may God fill that void within you. I will surely miss his laugh and that funny Canadian accent of his. I wish so bad that I could be there with my favorite aunt. Love you always Little Henry
