Pat was also my cousin, although I was too young to remember. I do know that he has always been a part of our family history. I wish that I had met him at an age that I would remember.

I found this by accident and was so excited! Pat was my cousin too - from his Mom's side. I was only 7 when we lost him but I have some really great memories. MyDad claimed he gave him his first guitar. Not sure if it was true but Dad loved him and his Music. Thank you for posting this.
