Jody Patterson's Cremation Fund

As many of you know, Jody passed away on Saturday 12/23/17. Jody touched many lives-- as a friend, mentor, spiritual leader, brother, road dog, and eternal urban land pirate. Throughout his life, he struggled with health problems, but this last year was particularly difficult, with several hosptial and hospice stays, and finally a significant stroke that led to him losing his ability to speak. It was a profound loss for him, as his greatest love was talking with friends, and sharing bits of wisdom through his endless supply of fascinating stories. We will always love our grumpy, loving curmudgeon, and will remember and retell all of your stories--and the new ones we made with you. I'm trying to raise some money to cover the cost of cremation, and a memorial to send him off in style, with a good party, lots of laughter, and, of course, as many stories as we can share.
