Patrick left this world at the young age of just 29 years old. He spent most of his all too short life suffering through daily battles with his "demons".
My demons and yours may be things like making the next mortgage payment, saving for the kids' college education, being a good enough brother, mother, uncle, etc. Patrick's demons ranged from why a strangers baby is crying at the grocery store, to world peace and every tragedy in between, not to mention the years of battle against his illness!
He carried the weight of the world on his shoulders and suffered equal empathy for all things...and yet he selflessly kept all of this hidden. Hidden behind compassionate eyes, the truest of smiles, and hidden within one of the warmest hearts ever known.
Despite his many struggles Patrick found the time and strength to help a great many people. He participated in support groups, mentored others - young and old alike, and gladly bent over backwards for anyone, asking nothing in return.
His life's passion was cooking, and all who have ever had the pleasure of tasting one of his creations would surely attest to his talent.
Truly one of the rarest of human beings, Patrick Brendan Mackey...an inspiration to all who knew him.

R.I.P. Patrick. It's a shame that you found this life too hard to bear. As one who suffers from bipolar disorder, I know very well how that feels and was lucky enough to be blessed with a son who I just couldn't leave behind. I hope to meet you on the other side, you sound like a wonderful young man. Sending prayers for your family and friends to find peace.

Maureen and family,
You know you were blessed to have Patrick in your life -- and him to have you in his. I wish I had known him. But knowing Maureen, his mom, and the total devotion, love and support she had for you and the family,I fully understand what a wonderful young man you were. To have this legacy in your honor is proof of the mark you left upon our world. Love and memories last forever.
A friend and admirer,
Delores J. Brooks
