  2. Becky Pattie says:

    Thank you on behalf of my family to everyone that helped in laying Robert to rest. The amount of support received by my family and I during this very difficult time is what is getting us through. We cannot thank all the fire departments, rescue squads, honor guards, the PGR, the Women’s Axillary, volunteers and friends enough for what you have all done. A very special thank you to Town of Salem Fire/Rescue for setting everything up so perfectly to honor my brother. Lastly, thank you to Scott from Buckley Air Force Base for escorting my brother home and Will for making the trip from Buckley. We are forever grateful to you all. Words cannot express how humbled we are by the outpouring of support during this very tragic experience!
