  1. Rest in Peace Father Patrick – I grew up down the street from Father Patrick and his family – I was in his brother Danny’s class at Good Shepherd – The Burns Family was a great family – A family of strong faith – Father Patrick was a great kid and grew up into a great man – My thoughts and prayers are with his family & friends – May The Angels Come To Meet Him – God Bless Father Patrick & His Family

  2. I hear some songs sometimes and they remind me of you. I quite literally fell to my knees when I heard you passed. Your services at St. Michael’s were my favorite from my childhood. I had always wished you could have done one more. I will always remember you, and though I don’t have faith anymore (and found answers for my comfort), I still believe you lead on, elsewhere, beyond this realm that you deserved better from. Because we got everything from you. One of those classic ones, forever forward. I miss you.
