  1. Merideth, I am so sorry for your loss. We meet Pat & you in Randy’s pulmanary rehab classes at Torrance Memorial Hospital a few years back. And we would run into the two of you over the years at Dr. Bold’s office. I remeber seeing the two of you there begining of the year or end of last year. Bob always enjoyed his short visits with Pat when he saw him. I know right now you don’t think the hurt will go away, but it gets a little easier day by day. I lost Bob, March 12 to his cancer. It was the worst day of my life. But it is getting better. Maybe Pat & Bob are up there having a longer visit, just shooting the breeze with each other. If there is anything you need or you just need to talk to someone you can email me. I go to a Bereavemet group thru Wellness Community that really helps. Take care of yourself, you should be your number one priority now, everything else will wait. Sincerely, Julie

  2. Pat was a good man and he made my girlfriend Merideth very happy when they got married. I’ll always remember his smile and pleasantness. He ran the Blue Moon Saloon for many years and it was one of my favorite places. He’ll be missed. May he rest in peace and my prayers are with Merideth and his family.
