The very first friend that l had was Patrick at Medulla Elementary. (1979) Even though we grew apart from time to time. We always found ourselves back in each other's company. We would talk for hours, as if we never missed a beat. I was flattered to meet his soon to be wife Katie and his wonderful daughter Mattie Sue in Lake Charles. We Munched on a huge can of cocktail peanuts and BBQ chicken. Ever since that day, I would think of Pat, everytime I would stroll down the isle with peanuts. My occupation aloud Pat and I to talk during odd hours. At times he would call me asking,"How do I get arround this traffic." I would guide him to his destination while catching up on each other's lives. One time in Texas (around Orange) he called me for directions going to Lufkin area. I-10 was closed in Beaumont. I sent him through the back roads going North. He then said,"This area reminds me of Florida." I told him,"l thought the same thing when I drove through there." I'm going to miss our long conversations and company. I will still talk to Pat and never forget the 40 years we shared. My deepest condolences to all of his family.
