janessaleone Anyone who has met me, even for a second, has by extension known my dad. He was and still is the best part about me. I don't think I ever will be able to understand why he was suddenly stripped from me on Tuesday, but what I do understand is that he has taught me the secret to life. He lived out what it means to cherish life and love without boundaries. Even in this unimaginable pain, I am comforted knowing that his life was fuller than anyone could wish for. He lived his life uninhibited with no filters or reservation.

He would do anything to make us laugh and make sure that we were happy. There’s not a person that has met him that doesn’t smile thinking about their last time with him- and that’s what he lived for.
Making his family and friends happy was the only thing he cared about, and he made it his sole purpose to make sure he succeeded- even if that meant eating orange peels or hurting himself just to make his kids laugh. He would never even take the last bite of his own birthday cake- he put every person before himself.

Anyone who knew him was able to experience his passion for life- and it was contagious. His laughter, his ridiculous puns, his incredibly inappropriate jokes, the fact that he would take his shirt off and dance and sing at any opportunity he had, his ability to make strangers his new best friends, or to pick up unassuming waitresses and swing them around. He truly lived every single day like he was on borrowed time- and he loved every second. He constantly told me that you can get away with anything if you do it with a smile.
Nothing was taken for granted and he loved wholly. He selflessly loved every person he met and he carried them in his heart. We don’t know why his heart stopped, but when it did, a piece of everyone shattered because we were all a part of him.
In my entire life, there wasn’t a day that went by that he didn’t love me beyond human comprehension. It was unconditional. It was constant. It made me complete.
Daddy, you are the greatest love of my life and will always be my best friend. I cannot wait to reunite with you in heaven.

  •   jayyd193 I loved this man so dearly and I can't even wrap my head around this. There are simply no words to describe the pain, but I am so incredibly grateful to experience many amazing times with our family and I will hold on to each moment with Pat for the rest of my life. I will never be thankful enough for this amazing guy, for the amount of love he has shared. I know there are no words to ease the pain you are going through as well, but I just want to send my love your way. He always told us how he is so proud of the amazing person you and Jonathan have become. He is watching over with that infectious smile he has, every single day and will always be right there with you. I love you janessa 22h
