My condolences to the family,loved ones & fans of Patrick. Well it seems I won’t be getting that letter delivered.
I had hoped to let Patrick know before he passed what an impact he made so many years ago on a young girl in Illinois. A dance and a few encouraging words changed my focus on dancing in another direction.Because of him I took ballet and I believe having that training has helped me in many other areas of life…not only dance.
I have him to thank for that. Then he was just getting started in the acting field. But to me he was a dancer with the Joffrey Ballet and I was impressed!
Many years later I had a chance to meet him again…It was a last minute hurried thing so I did not get to say all that I would have liked to. But I finally had a picture made with him.
He was a very kind,down to earth,strong man and I just wanted to let him know what a positive influence he made on me and my life.
Thank-you for being a light in my life.
Rest In Peace Patrick.-Angela P.
