    Patrick-Anthony was the sunshine of many people’s lives. That smile would always brighten your day. No matter what kind of day He was having he would give you a big smile and look at you with those bright blue eyes and long eyelashes.

    People should learn something from him. He would always come up to you give you a huge hug and say “I love you” no matter what you were doing.

    P.A. you are missed but thank you for letting us know and love you and teaching us a few things about being a better person.

    Your loving aunt and Godmother.

    I want to express my heartfelt sympathy to the Drossos and DeLuca families, but especially to Gina. You were a wonderful mother to Patrick, who never gave up hope and always did your very best for him, no matter how many other things you had to juggle. Life doesn’t alway seem fair, but Patrick is in the arms of God now, with no more suffering. As an added comfort in your time of grief, think of this from Revelations 21 in the Bible about the new heaven in the future, “And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.” My sincere love to all.

    I’m terribly sorry to hear about the passing of Patrick-Anthony. He is with the angels in heaven and no longer in any pain.

    He was an inspiration to everyone especially his ‘biological’ father Patrick Drossos and to his aunts and uncles, Mark and Maureen Drossos, Mary and Mike Kalaus, Diane and Mike Anastas and John and Marianne Drossos. He will be sadly missed by his cousins Michael and Nichole Kalaus and Alexis Drossos.
