Patrick still to this day I am affected by your death and being taken from the earth. See at six yeats old you were my hero and to me you were invincible. For perhaps the first time in my young life i felt safe when you and mom dated. As a kid who knew his share of violence you showed me that men could be gentle and yet still be tough as leather. Every year on the day of your passing the world is just different to me. Thanks for showing me what a real man was. I miss you more than I could ever express in words. I love you more than anything still to this day. Thanks for watching over me in life. And introducing me jamocha ice cream from hagen daaz
