  7. Walt and I send our deepest sympathy to all of the family on the loss of “Pat”.

    He was very special to both of us and took great care of our vehicles. He even felt badly when he told us our Chevy Venture had to be pronounced dead.

    He is going to be missed greatly. The corner of Andrew Rd and Business 55 looks bare without Pat’s blue truck sitting there. Rest in Peace, Pat.
