Happy Birthday Pat

Today would have been my brother Pat's 53rd birthday. He died on January 14, 2011, when he was 49 years old, of liver failure.

Pat didn't like to celebrate birthdays or holidays or special occasions. He lived every day like it was a party. Wherever he is now, I hope he's drinking and dancing and making everyone laugh like he did here on earth most of the time.

Pat was far from perfect. All of us are. Pat, like all of us, also had a special gift. Pat's gift was enjoying each moment of life to the fullest, drinking, dancing, jamming, laughing, partying like there's no such thing as tomorrow. Only the here. The now. This moment.

Might as well share it with those we love.
