I wanted to provide the information for Patrick Wickline's services. The league is cancelling any games that were scheduled for Thursday and it will be a coach's decision regarding practices on Thursday.
The outpouring of support for the Wicklines has been staggering. Many thanks to those of you who have already responded. Becky and the boys certainly have an army of people behind them as they walk through the uncertainty and challenges that lie ahead.
For planning purposes, here is the information about Patrick's services:
It is with an incredibly heavy heart that I write this email. As some of you may already know, our friend Patrick Wickline passed away suddenly Friday morning. Those of us that knew and were close to Patrick will remember his infectious smile and generous personality. Patrick was an amazing person that I am lucky to be able to call a friend.
Patrick's wife, Becky and their 3 sons, Noah, Brady and Jonathan need our prayers and thoughts as they work through this difficult time. The Wicklines are an amazing family and so many of us in the community are blessed to have them in our lives. We ask that any support you can offer be extended and know that it is greatly appreciated.
Patrick gave to our organization in so many ways and he will be missed dearly. He was a commissioner, manager, assistant coach, field volunteer, parent and most importantly FRIEND. He was always at a field joking with the coaches or umpires, supporting all of the players and having a great time watching the successes of our youth.
Words cannot express our sadness at the passing of someone so young who gave so much. This is a devastating loss that we are feeling right now, but we know that through our strength as a commmunity we will help the Wickline family in any way we can.
The following signup genius for meals and gofundme page have been set up as a start to help the family.
Photos are being collected to include at Patrick's memorial service. If you have photos to include, please email them to firstname.lastname@example.org Please just choose the best options so we don't overwhelm them.
