    Soo many great memories! Back to back deep sea fishing trips where I was winning and Patrick caught the biggest fish in the last hour to win. Winning a PS2 at a bar before a bruins game because Patrick helped me cheat. The many times having a beer in NH telling stories play pool and darts. Left an impact on everyone! I will always cherish those good times. Love ya, Til we meet again
