Remembering Patrick (as if we ever forget...)




Patrick Michael Burkett
January 31, 1986 - March 18, 2006






Little boy....
drawing Spiderman....

motorizing a rubber band car...

constructing robots... (oh, his elegant hands)

playing chess with sister Molly...


loving his big brothers, Ian...

and Shaun...
and sometimes just barely tolerating Shaun....


taking part in the UU ceremony of dedication....




Young man...
first playing guitar....


...playing cool with friends...
just playing cool...

rockin' out....


Rock in Peace, Patrick
beloved son, brother & cherished friend

AHHH Patrick had a brief but fabulously wonderful life- and he was very loved. So sorry he left us so soon- on this plane of existence- He had bigger fish to fry but that leaves us wanting. So, selfishly, I wish , I wish, I hope, that this life is but a dream.
