I’m so sorry to hear of this! I always enjoyed talking to both of you and remember the great times we had together going out to eat too!

I was in his office in August 2020 and he was just like usual very happy and joking. I shared with him at that time a new person in my life and he sad good for you and wished me luck. I was looking forward to introducing him to both of you.

I hope to see you and talk with you from time to time.

Please contact me anytime,

Joel Miller

I am so sorry for your - and the community's - loss. I spent many memorable hours in court and in conference rooms with Pat, hearing all his stories, sharing laughs - a blessing to recall. May God's comfort and strength blanket you all.

Vicki, so sorry to hear about Pat. We just met with him in July and he was following all safety measures. We even elbow bumped when we left. He and you did so much for us over the years. We always thought of you two as real friends. You are in our thoughts and prayers.
