To see the lengths his family went through to create happy memories over the past nine months and with such loving dedication to Patrick, it will forever stand in testimony to them as a loving family.

The tremendous strength, courage, love and care that you’ve shown through such a hard time is unimaginable.
You are truly in the thoughts and hearts of us all. God may now be blessed with a little angel in Heaven but he will be forever by your side. May he rest in peace.”
