I love Patrick and was hoping for a miracle for him. My Dad had pancreatic cancer, so I know how dreadful this cancer can be.
Thoughts and prayers for his family.

My husband lives and dies by the movie, "Point Break". It is so strange to think that someone as strong and athletic as he was was brought so low in under two years. He really did battle as hard as he could with it, too.

He seemed to not only be a terrific dancer, but a loving, faithful husband. Yes, RIP Patrick.
