Went to a celebration of life for my friend Pat today. He showed me such kindness and care. When I needed contracting  work done for the building he was the man. But, more than that. He was kind, nice and could talk!  A classic old school Californian with talk takes, and a love of shooting the shit. He constantly invited me to his place to see the ‘pirates cove’ he had built, with a treehouse, hot tub and multiple smokers and grills. RIP Pat!
