Pat was my cousin. And I have many memories of him. But he was not only a cousin, though cousins are the best. He was also a friend.

We hung out a lot when we were teenagers. And we did a lot of things that teenagers do.

We would take turns driving the car so others could bumper ride behind the back of the car when the roads were icy in West Hillhurst.

There were 4 or 5 of us one night that sat in the back of Pat’s big white panel van, parked on a street in front of someone’s house. Pat, Robert, Ross, me, and possibly Brenden all sat on milk crates and talked about the universe and the wonders of the world. We were there for hours. It was the things that dreams could be made of. We were young and there was a lot of possibility in the world.

I remember driving around in Pat’s Charger and watching the gas disappear off the gage. That car was so cool, but it ate gas like we ate candy.

There are many more times as kids that I can’t tell you about but just know we had a great time.

As time passed and we became adults we saw each other less and less. It was really only during funerals that we got together. But I found after moving to Brisbane, Australia, when I would return to Calgary I would make a point of getting together with cousins. Pat was always there.

Sometimes we would visit Aunt Martha when she was still alive then head out for lunch.

I am saddened that I can’t be with you all today as you celebrate the life that Pat lived. I cherish my memories and will hold Pat always in my heart.

I have one favour to ask as you are all gathered here. Set a date 2 months from now, and get together with each other. Just to be together. Life is too short and it goes way too quickly.

Love you now and always Pat.
Sharon Higson (your cousin)
