They were both chatting in a texting group created by The Waltons star Richard Thomas. Soon, they began talking on their own and met up as soon as it was safe to do so. Now, they’re inseparable. Patrick revealed, “I loaded up my car and drove 20 hours and ended up on her doorstep just to see if it was real. We haven’t been apart since.”
Patrick added that he believes his late wife, Carlyn Rosser would be happy that he found love again. She died of cancer in 2017. He added, “I feel quite honestly, that it is keeping with the desires of my wife, the fact that we are intended to be happy. So when it’s offered, think about it, do whatever you do, but don’t let it pass you up if it’s the right thing.”
