Hey guys, I don't ever really post here but I read threads occasionally and I followed Pat on IG.
I know it's a crazy idea and there's probably no way to actually make it happen, but it sounds like some of this stuff should be in a "museum" of some sort. Maybe at Piecelock studio? I know, the reality of making it happen is insane... but I'm not sure what else you would do with the personal memorabilia.
It just reminds me though about how amazing the group and the fans are. Inspiring stuff...
Thanks for stopping by and commenting cdoc, it's appreciated by all the forum heads!
I believe this was mentioned earlier in the thread and I'd imagine Esomedina proposed this to Thes when he discussed Pat's PUTS merch. Keeping the collection together, I feel, was everyones preference but would have required a location to display/store it. With how large Pat's collection is the display would have a fairly large footprint. With the response that Eso received from Thes I'm guessing that he doesn't have the space or doesn't want to be constantly reminded of his dear friend's passing... maybe even both I don't know as I am guessing at what was said. We've decided as a group to let Eso decide what to do as he currently has the collection. Whatever the decision, it's not an easy one to make and will be tough regardless of the direction it takes...
Again, thanks for chiming in cdoc. It's amazing how many people Pat touched with his online presence, he is sorely missed around here no doubt. We hope to see you around, hopefully by way of posting but if you'd still like to lurk in the forum I won't hold it against you!
