Patrick's father passed away yesterday. So I figure a thread was in order to pass along condolences from the Giant Bomb community, and also just appreciation for what he brings to the site. My father passed away not too long ago, and it was the hardest thing I've ever been through. So I think this will make Patrick smile when he gets a chance to see this. =)

It's really shame that you father never get to see you go down the aisle with the woman you love. I'm so sorry to hear about this Patrick. My condolences to you and your family. Take some time of to reflect and think and get back to us when you feel better.
