Dear Eileen – we send our dearest sympathies to you in the passing of Patrick. Our son, David, spent many days with “PJ” when they were both at Debbie Dingler’s for childcare. I know that has been over 20 years ago, but we remember PJ and his family. When I saw Patrick’s obituary I was shocked! David remembers PJ and sends his sympathy also. You and your family will be in our prayers. May God grant you the peace and comfort that only He can give. God bless you.

Dear Eileen,

First of all, I want to tell how not only how beautiful you looked today but what wonderful
job you did with such a totally sad and tragic position. I have not slept all week thinking of you and how could I possibly had such a situation. You must have the most wonderful faith that could get you through this.

I will always remember calling back and forth as the boys went through high school and the many times we would exchange notes so that we could make sure they were on they right path…it was not easy but they both made it and we, as parents, can be proud of the men they were becoming. Pat was a wonderful young man and I will always appreciate his friendship with Evan, who at times, is not easy to be friends with.

I promise to touch base with you soon to just enjoy soon time together. You had a wonderful son and I know brought great joy to you. There is something special with a mother and a son!

Much fondness,

Kathy Tirschek
