Pat and Charlie were always great neighbors when they lived in Talma. Pat was a great person who always made my mom and dad and our whole family laugh. When Pat left Talma after Charlie's passing you could sense a fire full of laughter and piss and vinegar was gone. We will miss you Pat! God Bless.
