  13. When I was a teenager, every year I received mystery cards signed “Love, George” and it was years before my older brother, Robin Hemeon, admitted that it was his wonderful friend, Pat, who was signing these and posting them from many different places. It mystified me for a long time. Pat was a regular visitor to Liverpool while he was in pharmacy school, so it was fun to have an older friend who was kind enough to tease me as though he was a secret admirer. A lifelong memory. Sincere condolences for your loss.

  14. Dear Suzzi -Extending my deepest sympathy and love to you at this saddest of times. Pat had all the qualities of a wonderful person. It was a pleasure to be in his company. He will be missed by many. I share in your grief.

  15. Dear Susie, you may not remember me but I spent a lot of time with Pat years ago. As a matter of fact, my mother was the nurse in his Dads office. Also I worked with Blaine and Gloria’s at the tv station. Having said all that, I’m greatly saddened by this loss. Pat was a fine man, a real gentleman. Please accept my condolences.

  16. A kind man. A good person. Patrick had a profound faith. God will have received him with a cold drink, a summer day, a book and a shady porch .

  17. Dear Suzzi – It is times of great loss that we realize how limiting words can be and how special our friends truly are. Pat was such an “easy” man to be around; no pretentiousness & full of love and acceptance – a “salt of the earth” person. Our sincerest sympathies are with you and all the Melanson family.

  18. My Deapest Sympathies Suzzi. Pat was a good boss to work for at the pharmacy in Memramcook. Marielle and I had talked about going to see him, but it never happened. Life seems to throw us curve balls all the time. I hope you find your way through the grief and the paperwork that will come your way soon.
