So sorry for your loss. I can not be there today but my heart is.

- Susan Loar, Wednesday June 6th, 2018

I remember Mr. Hixon from his days as an interested, caring father of his son who was a good player in our Springfield Babe Ruth League. He was always friendly and supportive of our program. During the all star tournament, I got to spend some time with him and found him to be great person who liked to have fun. His wife was a very good person as well. He spoke most highly of her. As the news of his death recently surfaced, a number of individuals whom I discovered were our mutual friends, also shared fond memories of him. To his family and friends, I extend my deepest sympathy in your loss. Keep remembering those happy times you spent with Patrick. He would appreciate your continued remembrance, knowing that he will see you again upon your arrival in God's heavenly kingdom.
