Sharon: I was so sorry to hear about Pat. My heart goes out to you since Vince also died suddenly as you know. Please let me know if you need anything at all. I would be glad to stay at your house during the visitation and the service if you’d like me to. One of our neighbors down the street stayed here during Vince’s service and it was so comforting to not have to worry about something happening to the house while we were at the church. My cell is 816-510-2620. John and I are surrounding you and Sera with comforting love and prayers……Kathy Palermo

My most sincere condolences for this loss. Although I didn’t know Patrick long, I truly enjoyed the time we spent together. Patrick was a great man. God Bless.

You came into my life when I was just a little girl and at that time I perceived you as someone trying to take my aunt Sharon away from me. Little did I know you would have a profound impact on my life. We had many conversations, some argumentative in nature ….but in a good way and mostly over Thanksgiving dinners over the years. Making this year that much harder. From day one you encouraged me and taught me the importance of having a college education. It took me a few years to listen but I did it! The most important part is you were there for graduation!!

This day has come far too soon. Thank you for all the conversations and amazing dinners. Thank you for always being best tour guide anyone could ask for. To say you’ll be missed is an understatement. We love you and thank you for EVERYTHING XOXO

Sharon you have our deepest sympathy for your loss. It was such a long time ago that I worked with you and Patrick on the LA Green Line in the early 1990’s and enjoyed the McKenna family hospitality during my time there. Please remember the good times during your hour of grief. Regards, George & Sharon Miles
