  1. I just bought and listened to the CD by David Britten. The song “On the Run” is excellent. Anyone who knew Paddy or of his life will certainly enjoy this song. What a beautiful tribute to Paddy.

        My name is Jimmy Winter. I worked with your Dad when we were at Pure Spring, circa early 1960’s.
        In the early 2000’s, Paddy and myself were exchanging letters and photos from days gone bye.
        He sent me photos of his time in the Philippines…with his Wife and Son.
        Also photos of you and your Mom…and Jake and Joey…and Janice.
        And pic’s of his time in Leavenworth…with another prisoner…and as an Altar Boy and a photo of himself with the Bishop of Kansas. ( 12 pictures in total)
        The letters he sent me are fantastic…very long-winded and funny.

        I want to put the above letters and photos on my FACEBOOK page, but before doing so….I respectfully ask you for permission to do so.

        nice writing to you,
        Jim Winter
