    I am in shock. I have been looking for Patrick on Facebook for years. I will always remember moving to Yaupon Beach from Durham with him and living in the hotel with him for 6 months. We got really close back then and then lost track of each other. He was a great person and friend and it hurts to finally find him this way. We will all miss you Patrick!

    We always liked when Pat would stop by the store. Sometimes for drum stuff, sometimes just to say 'hey'. We will miss that. Rock on Pat...
