Pat and I ushered at church. I always enjoyed being around him. I said a prayer for you Nancy.

God Bless Pat Day! Nancy, I’m so sorry for your loss. He was such a fun and sunny person. I knew Pat from Skywest which was a lovely place to be! My Daddy, George Cummins, loved being with you all there too. Pat was there to cheer me on the day I soloed! Memories of your chili cook offs, Bill Jessup, Joe Greenhill and all the other great folks there are some of my favorites! He is definitely enjoying good company, still flying with his new wings, while he waits for you to join him someday. I wish I could hug you. Caren

We met Pat through Nancy, who we already considered so much more than a customer. His smile was as infectious as his friendly charm. I never had to look for Pat at events, he usually found us; hugs all around and Nancy's bubbly laugh would follow as he invited us to where they were. I'm sure he was that way with many people; making them feel comfortable and at the same time included. For those still here, for his family, friends, and Nancy... while there is now a Pat shaped hole in the universe, where he once was, I pray that God's grace, love and the genuine kindness Pat shared will fill it up until we get to see him again. I'm pretty sure that by the time we get there, he will have found the very best table and be waiting for us with a hug and a smile.

I wish to bid a fond farewell from all MAF QBs, and West Texas Flyers. I also know that Pat is surely trading stories with Joe Greenhill, and all those Friends, Gone West. Godspeed, Pat. Bill Robinson
