Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I had the Honor of Serving with Patty Brown as a member of Rescue Company 2.
We were the "FLOOR ABOVE" Team on many occassions, where We were in critical situations on a Regular Basis during a Busy Night Tour in the "Boro of Fire",that was Brooklyn New York at the Time.

Patty was a very unique individual, which is described very well in this collection of Memories.

Of the 343 Brothers in Battle, 42 of whom I worked with during My career, who made the Supreme Sacrifice on that Day, it's nice to see Patty is remembered in such a balanced way.

There was nothing simple about Patty Brown, he was as much a Humanitarian as he was a Warrior.

Format: Paperback
I highly recommend this book. The eminently readable, yet very moving "Miss You, Pat" is a collection of personal stories about an FDNY legend: Captain Patrick "Paddy" Brown. Each story, written by those who knew Brown, paints part of what is revealed to be the portrait of a life lived to the fullest in every sense.

In a time where "hero" is used to describe sports stars and movie actors, Sharon Watts introduces us to a true hero - Paddy Brown - a man deserving the title not just because he died in the line of duty on September 11, 2001 - but because of how he lived prior to that day. Read this book and be inspired!

This is a remarkable collection of stories about a man who was a legend in the FDNY, a man who performed incredible feats and heroic rescues. But his real heroism is that he made a choice to be a better person in spite of all that had happened to him in his childhood (and it was pretty bad). This book is like reading fragile lace -- stories interwoven that make you laugh and make you cry, culminating in the beautiful letter from Captain Patrick Brown to the author that leaves you wishing you could have known him yourself. Thank you, Sharon, for this loving tribute.

Format: Paperback
This book is a gem written by the friends of a NYFD captain who died on 9.11. The power of Miss You, Pat is that it demonstrates the extraordinary goodness of just one of the ordinary heroes who answered the call.
