  1. I am so sorry to hear of Pat’s passing. I recall spending time with him, Rita and the rest of the Roach family on their farm.
    I am hoping he is at peace now.
    I am praying for his family and surrounding you with my love.

  2. My condolences to the Roach Family. Patrick was a amazing person. He will definitely be missed

  3. My heart goes out to all that knew & loved
    Patrick. Jenni & Sara you both know you all hold a special piece of my heart. I extend my sincerest condolences at this most difficult time. I will say the best way to honor Patrick is to keep his memory alive. Talk about everything, big or small. Most people avoid mentioning a deceased loved one.
    However the greatest gift they can give you is a fond memory of your dad!
    Love Paulette
