"Rose and family: I was so saddened to learn of Patrick's passing. I worked with Patrick for many years at the hospital and his stint as a volunteer. During all those many years, Patrick was a highlight of my work. His friendly smile and kindness were a welcome source of inspiration for me. He was an excellent employee who always kept the hospital as the focus of his work. He was always the first to volunteer to help with any and all employee events. He took our laundry services to a high level of competence, service and cleanliness. He was a leader in the hospital and played an important role in our success. I will miss him dearly. Please know that Patrick and all of you are in my thoughts and prayers every day.God bless all of you. Dave Schneider"

"Dear Rosemary - I want to personally extend sympathy to you and your family. Pat was a high school classmate. He used to tease me just to see me blush I think. It was interesting to meet him after I had his brother, Jack as a teacher in elementary school. Let your family be your strength through this phase of life. Janet (Rosio) Schoblaska"
