J. Pat Greer - what a man, indeed. I will miss him as will many others. It was an honor to have known him and rubbed shoulders - even a little. His humor, love of family, love of God, steadfast dedication to the community, mentoring, and just plain calm friendship to many speaks volumes about his truly wonderful and rich character. To all his family ... thank you for sharing him. We all have been enriched through him. Love you all and special hugs to all. Tom Hartnett Pat and Lila were two of the first people we were blessed to meet when we moved to Hesperus. It was in the Marvel Methodist Church where we met them along with several members of their family. Pat was always available to visit and had a wonderful smile and great sense of humor. He will be missed by so many but we look forward to seeing him again. He was a man of God and we look forward to hearing more stories when we join him in heaven! Condolences to his entire family. With much love and affection for you all, Elaine Hartnett
