    Just wanted to extend our sympathies from Rachel and I to Aunt Colette and the kids, I have many fond memories of hunting with Pat and my Dad at Raft Lake with the old green Ford truck as well as some pretty successful fishing trips to Crooked Lake and Bays Water. Pat was always the teacher and things he taught me about fishing and hunting still serve me today.
    May the good memories sustain you through this very difficult time.

    To Tim, Mike, Colette and the Thompson family.
    I would like to offer my condolences on Pat’s passing away.
    Pat coached me in pee-wee hockey a long time ago at Lockerby Playground and then taught me at Lo-Ellen Park. Later on we were able to work together on several construction projects. I always had a great respect for Pat.
    May all the good memories help you through your your loss.
