My deepest sympathy to the Raith family. I will always be grateful for the kindness Pat showed my elderly parents, James & Elizabeth Windorff, who retired to Junction City. Pat and his now ex-wife Cindy visited with them and gave them frozen chickens etc. Pat was very special to them. May he rest in peace and live on eternally in our memories.
