    I will always remember Paddy as a friendly, gentle giant. I have very fond memories of spending happy times with Paddy back in the early seventies in Little Harbour as our Wild Bologna regatta team prepared for Gander Day. Paddy was the driving force behind us and good times were had by all.

    Paddy will live on in our hearts forever. Sincere best wishes to the entire Cashin family.
