This is a little background about the two Pats. Patrick and Pat were married on March 17, 2008. They met over 40 years ago while working for the same company. Pat left that job after 7 years but Patrick continued on and retired from there after 26 1/2 years. They kept in touch over the years. Thanks to the internet, they reconnected online and began communicating on a regular basis. After over 4 years of dating they tied the knot. Patrick was already retired and Pat retired after they got married. Pat also sold her house and they moved to their current home in June of 2008. Patrick owned a house on Lake Osakis in northern Minnesota and was able to sell it that fall. They are now enjoying retirement on the Sauk River and the Horseshoe Chain of Lakes.
