On that fateful day of July 26th, 1990, Patrick, 20 years old, helped fix a road packer. He was given the opportunity to drive it in the afternoon and it overturned on him fifteen minutes later. Life changed for us that day. Mom, Dad, sister and brothers, carry this tragedy with them every day of their lives. We embrace his memory in our heart, but it would be, oh so much better, if we could embrace him in our arms and in our life here on earth. We miss you Patrick.
