Whenever Patrick and Denise visited our home in Jamaica, it was always an instant party. They brought much laughter and happiness with them and you always wanted to be with them. Growing up with my 3 brothers, Patrick always made us feel that we were important and mattered. He listened to our stories and always had a smile and laugh. If we ever needed a ride somewhere, we knew he was just a phone call away. When he and Denise moved to Hempstead, New York, the party moved there with them. They welcomed everyone into their home with music, dancing and delicious food.
Pat loved cooking and taught me how to make a good egg omelette and the best ackee and saltfish. He was loving and kind and always doing little things that showed how much he cared. When I visited him with my youngest who was about 2 years at the time, he disappeared and then reappeared with a beanie baby that he purchased just for her. 20 years later, we still have that beanie baby and all the special memories around it.
Thank you Pat, for being such an important part of our lives. Thank you for the care and love that you gave us. You will be greatly missed. Rest in everlasting peace.
