    I only knew Patrick for a short time... Three years... In that time I found Pat to be a happy, intelligent and artistic man... He was fun to be around and a good man... He was respectful and engaging to all the people he met... He was also a talented glass blower and was Very creative... He'll be very much missed by all who knew him... But especially by his Mother and Sister... May God Rest His Soul...

    Very heartbreaking tragedy to lose such a close friend and brother since a young age. We became friends in grammar school and have held on to our friendship since then. He was truly my brother. A strong influence and also the kind of person you could lean on when daily struggles of life would sometimes become too overwhelming. R.I.P, Patrick, I love you brother and your legacy will surely never be forgotten by me and your family. My kids will hear many stories of his Uncle Patrick Dolan. Till we meet again. SINCERELY, Shane Allen

    My Wonderful Son, How I miss you smile, your hugs, and just knowing your in the next room, or just a ride up the mountain. My heart is broken, I know people have told me, time will help ease the pain, I wish I could believe them. You were my light, my rock, the smile I could almost hear over the phone. You were always quick with a witty comeback. You picked me up when I was down, even if you were feeling down yourself at the time. You always put other's before yourself. Anyone who met me, who knew you, made a point to come to me, to say what a great job I have done in raising you. Fact is, you had to grow up too fast. Being from a divorced home, loosing your father at such a young, and vulnerable age. You did a lot yourself. I taught you the basics in life, and your quest made you search for all of life's answers. Your love of glass blowing showed in each and every piece you created. Your life was taken much too soon, you always wanted to have a family, and you would have been such a great father. Never will a day go by that I don't think of you, cry for you, and remember all the great, to silly things you did to make me smile. Goodbye my dear son. You will always be in my heart.
