Dear Cynthia and family,
I was so sad to hear of Pat's death and my thoughts and prayers are with you.I was at vet school with Pat-Jo Arbuckle in those days-and though I have only seen Pat a couple of times in the intervening years, I will always remember Pat as being larger than life, funny , cheeky and very kind. He was often a shining light in the sometimes dark and hard slog of veterinary studies. Love to you all.

I am so sorry to hear Pat has passed. He fought long and hard to stay with you all. He was a real inspiration with his strength and positive attitude, his ongoing research into treatments that would support him to continue living with you as long as he could. I know he’ll always be missed but he’ll always remain in your hearts.
