This was posted by a Drfunkenberry.com reader and I wanted to share it with everyone. Added are photo's by the person who posted it. I hope you enjoy......

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.

Ron Silver passed away Sunday morning in his home in New York while sleeping.

Ron died after a 2 year battle with esophageal cancer.  He had an extensive career in movies and television and created the Creative Coalition for actors.  His stance supporting George W. Bush after 9/11 and coming out in support of him at the 2004 Republican National Convention hurt him getting jobs in Hollywood.  He said the liberal Hollywood made it hard for him although he could not name a job it costs him, it did make it hard for him to find roles.  He was a democrat up until that point.
Ron will be remembered for his work and not his political affilition.-Dr.FB
