Patrick Elliott A large part of my life has passed. The man who was a mentor and a friend has moved on to a far better place. It was difficult to witness his long struggle, but his strength and tenacity was inspiring. He was so often the steady hand my wif, Mary, needed and appreciated. We will forever miss his stories, his wit and his wisdom. Rest in peace friend.
