With deepest sympathy, my husband and I wish to convey our condolences to the family of Pat O'Leary, as we knew him, when we lived in Metamora. Dorothy, his deceased wife, used to come visit us in Mineral, VA and we would hear all about the family. I had not seen him since I lived in Metamora, but did remember his blue eyes, which have not changed. Rest in Peace, Pat. Darlene & Gerald Gerwitz
