Love you, Uncle Pat. Twins season won't be the same without receiving calls from you about their performance and wanting some tickets. You are dearly missed, but not forgotten.

To the entire Huinker family, Pat and I were in the National Guard together briefly back in 78-80. He left a lasting impression on me as someone I could really look up to. We ran into each other a few times throughout the years at Camp Ripley or in Faribault and he always had the same smile, and always remembered me. My condolences to you during this difficult time. Pat will be missed and fondly remembered. Patrick Hansen
