Update for Patrick Sheeran Jr.

I have been keeping up to date on the progress of Pat and Karen Sheeran’s son Patrick since his life changing injury sustained when he was hit by a car. Patrick Jr. is an incredibly resilient and strong young man with long road of recovery and therapy in front of him however his progress has been nothing short of miraculous. The human mind and body are phenomenal things to observe after they become injured and search for ways to heal. Patrick’s experience is no different and this becomes evident when you read Pat and Karen’s daily posts on the website: Patrick Sheeran Caring Bridge

I encourage all to visit this site by clicking the above link, watch the progress and by all means leave a message to show your support and the fact that they are in your thoughts. It will be a very different Christmas for the Sheeran’s this year but you can help with your public encouragement.

I wish all of you nothing but health, happiness, and time with family this holiday season.

Cheers, sr


One Of Ours Needs Us

Hey ’73 Falcons and Braves, not sure you received this news on Facebook but we’ve got a brother that needs our support, prayers and if possible, donations.


Shortly after we got the chance to reconnect with Pat Sheeran at the reunion in September his family sustained a life altering event as their son, Pat Sheeran Jr. was critically injured after being hit by a car in Florida.



I visited the Caring Bridge website (linked above) to get an idea of the extent of what the Sheeran’s are facing. Young Patrick has huge mountain to climb as you will see when you follow the thread of his progress thus far. Pat and Karen Sheeran could use our support in a big way. Contact them through Facebook, stay updated through Caring Bridge and leave them a message in the guestbook, and above all keep Patrick in your thoughts and prayers. If you have the resources please consider sending a donation to reach our goal of $120,000.00 for Patrick’s long road to recovery.
I believe this would do them a world of good right now knowing that we have their back.
