To my wonderful "Uncle Patrick", the Erlandese, you have been in our family since the day I was born, as a matter of fact, I've been told that you were actually married to my late Aunt Domenica in England in on my birthday in 1956. You later came to Italy to visit your new "Italian Familia", in-laws, along with my brothers and later sister. You became very instrumental in helping my parents immigrate to the United States of America. Eventually we set our voyage to join you in America. It is such a memorable experience for us to have come and live with you in your home in Kearny, NJ until we found our new home. You were so welcoming to have us with you as we slowly adjusted to the " American way of life". You were always so eager to help us grow up and learn new things, from riding a bicycle, taking us on many trips to the sea shore, Niagara Falls, Canada, and much more. My memories of you are always so positive as you were a great role model for me, especially the way you expressed your love and care for my Aunt Domenica. All your stories and positive outlook on life, will always be in my heart. Thank you for all the loving and amazing memories of times shared together from Italy, New Jersey, Canada and Florida. I will always remember your laugh, smile, and slight English accent, as my Dublin, Irish uncle. You will be truly missed. May you Rest In Peace, along with all our Beloved relatives...forever more "Uncle Patrick." Love, your nephew Mario.

R.I.P Uncle Pat.

May you rest in peace my godfather. Thank you for all the memories, love and support especially at a young impressionable age. You always found time to check in on the Cervino kids to make sure we were adjusting to the American life style. You will be missed. There are no goodbyes for us. Wherever you are, you will always be in my heart and until we meet again. RIP Uncle Pat.....

R.I.P. Uncle Patrick !! You have left us but the lifetime memories will remain with us forever. From beeing a big proponent of our imigrating to America to picking up our family in N.Y. coming off the ship in 1966 (mom, dad with 4 young children) and taking us all into your home on Columbia Avenue in Kearny which you Aunt Domenica and Nonno Pietro and Nonna Maria were living in at the time made it quite a cozy for a few months all of us together. Teaching us our ABC's and getting us registered for school to taking us to the Sea Shore in your boat or up and down the Passaic River just for fun, taking us on vacation to Niagara Falls, or to Florida to visit Disney, the Space Center or Daytona Beach those wonderful memories will remain with us forever. You and Aunt Domenica which you were a wonderful husband to her and gave us some good examples of how a man should treat his wife loved to travel. You often went to visit your family in Ireland and England also Aunt Domenica side of family in Italy. Also you traveled all over Florida for the 39 years you lived there as you lived in St Petersburg, Tampa, Newport Richie and Jacksonville before moving back to NJ in 2013 after Aunt Domenica passed away. Your ability to speak with and make friends with total strangers especially over the last few years when you were dealing with your health issues and keeping a positive outlook no matter how difficult things got for you was something to be admired. We will miss you Uncle Pat but your life's example will continue to live with us. We can't ever repay but will be forever grateful for all that you did to help our family immigrate and have the opportunities the most people can't even dream. R.I.P. 🙏 UNCLE PAT 🙏 and thank you for our everlasting memories.
