First let me offer my condolences for your loss. My wife is in a room up the hall from Patrick for two years, I got to know him in the past year and we talked at times, he always asked how my wife is doing and he told me many times that he watches me taking care of her and he would say ( you are a good man) that meant a lot to me I was not looking for praise but I really appreciated it. He told me about his wife and the long happy marriage they had and how much he misses her. He was fine man and will be missed. God Bless
