Very sad to hear the news about Pat
You know when I met Pat at AWA back in the late 90s, AMVs were around, but they weren't a large part of any convention. You could tell back then that Pat was a guy who really had it together and was helping make what came to be the biggest forum for anime music video creators. Over the years I saw the AMV community grow because of what Pat helped build. Thanks to that I'm grateful to him, not only for all the great people I was able to meet over those years, but for being a prime example of integrity and hard work. His example is a testament to what can be accomplished when you put that level of dedication into anything you do.
So thanks for everything Pat, you will truly be missed brother.
