I am so sorry for your loss, Patrick. I just lost my dad in June and unfortunately understand the pain of losing a dad. I hope you and your family continue to heal and prayers are sent your way.

I am saddened to learn of the passing of my high school and hunting buddy Pat.
we spent many hours in the field hunting together and growing up. Pat was also the best man at my wedding. With Teddy keeping an eye on us, we roamed the Mule and Whetstone mountains as often as time and seasons allowed. Vaya con dios Pat.
