Prior to Patrick's health issues he was a free spirit who loved riding his Harleys, especially his Screamin Eagle. He was a long-time member of The Mudhunter. There was not a hug, handshake, fist bump or nod that Patrick didn't enjoy.
At Patrick's request there will be no services. A celebration of his life will be announced in the near future.
The shadow knows and the blind can see through the shadows.
Visualize in the brightest colors, to hear the light enter from afar.
Imagine the impact; are you really brighter than the shadow?
Or only human.
We can visualize witness to clarify the shadow, but please turn off the light.
And admit the ongoing, upcoming clarity
Into the later hours on to the brighter bright.
