  • My thoughts and prayers go to everyone in this difficult time. In life, there are a few people we meet who will shape our perception of the world. You were able to do that with a smile. I may have only shared a few moments with you, but you shared your life as a blessing to everyone that surrounded you. Your kind spirit will never be forgotten, but will live on to those you shared your life with. Rest in peace❤

  • My baby boy I don`t know how I am going to make it with out you. When I was not at work we was always together. Doing things around the house, working on the yard or the pool. You was such a big help to to me. Buy just being there and keeping me company. I will miss the times mom worked nights or went to bingo the first Friday night of the month and we went out and had a steak dinner. I know how much you enjoyed them. The yearly Trotta men crab feast will never be the same again. I will even miss the times we argued because we never got mad at each other, And if we did it did not last long. You were my side kick. I will miss hearing your foot steps coming to check on me if I slept in on a Sunday. You loved and looked out for everyone. There is so much more I could add but just know that daddy loves you with all my heart and misses very bad. I know you are in good hands because pop pop will take good care of his boy.
    Till we see each other again.

  • Pat,

    I still can not come to terms that you really are gone. I wish I never took for granted that there is always tomorrow, now that tomorrow is gone I realize its too late. I’m gonna miss our fishing trips to Woodland Beach and Augustine Beach. Like fishing in the nor’easter and catching fish in the parking lot at Augustin Beach. I’m gonna miss talking about riding around with the slwd ties to the riding mower and you laughing hysterically telling the part when we crashed. I wish you could see how many peoples lives you touched with that big smile and bigger heart. Your definitely where one of a kind and where truly a beautiful person inside and out. I just want you to know that even though you are deeply missed down here, please live it up with everyone there. I know when I look up to the stars and see that one star brighter than the others its you, you where always the brightest person in the room. Until we meet again I love you!!

  • I love you miss you Pat

  • RIP pat and my condolences to the entire Trotta family

  • Well Pat, that was probably the hardest thing I ever had to do in my lifeWas to say goodbye to you. But I don’t call it goodbye, because you will always live in my heart and in my memories for the rest of my life.

I know you will be around to watch over us especially your nieces and nephews. You have baby blu with you Jaylen got your swing yesterday so you did what you said you wanted to. I love you my special angel boy . ENJOY ALL THOSE LOVES ONES THAT HAVE BEEN WAITED FOR YOU

  • I love u pat today was hard. I know your up in heaven in god hands and with our love ones. I never wanted u to leave me. I just need you to know I love you so much! I wish I could tell you again but I can’t so now I can just pray you hear me and look after me. I never ask u to have my back or look over me cuz that was my job as your big brother. But I need you to look after me now. I can’t do this without u. Idk how to live my life without u. I only had 3 years without u n I don’t remember them. You was way to young to go. But god only takes the best. I’m man enough to say u was the best and if I can learn anything from u is to love everyone and give people more chances. I’m broken down here without u and I don’t know if I’ll ever be the same. I’m always the one that makes me people smile and laugh when they are hurt or down. Who can I look to, to do that for me? Cuz I need it now more then ever. The last year has taken a toll on me with losing my baby and now you. I just stare at ur pic on my wall. Or your pics on my phone and I’m just in disbelief. I just feel like it’s a nightmare n I just want to wake up and your here.
    Thank you for being the best little brother to me. Your a true blessing to me and all of us. I need you to know your always be apart of me and in my heart. Your memories will be with us forever. I love you pat pat!

    I can’t stop thinking bout you. I don’t know what else to do then talk to you in prayer or text you or write on here. I love you man.

  • My prayers and condolences to the Trotta family. When I received the news I was devastated; not just because of my regret in only sharing a few moments with Pat, but with times being as difficult as they are these days.. it makes you want to cherish your family more. And to be as young as he was.. It still blows my mind. But, I was raised in a God fearing family and from what I’m aware the Trotta family is as well. I believe in the power of prayer. So I just pray that God provides you all comfort and peace during this difficult time
    Rest in Paradise
    You will be dearly missed 🙏🙏🙏

  • Love u baby bro!! ❤️😢😘🙏🏽💔

  • I laugh. I cry. I smile. I frown. All these emotions happen when I think about u. I still can’t believe ur gone. I don’t want to accept it. I’m so thankful mom bring you over to the house Wednesday so vee aj and I got to see you. I wish we had more time with u but I’ll always remember the time we had and they will never be forgotten. I love you Pat. Please know that we all do and your miss more and more everyday. I cry everyday at some point thinking about you. This a piece of me gone. A big piece. A part of my heart that will never be filled is gone. I pray god gives me the strength to one day think about you without tears or pain. You was a different breed man. You kind gentle soul. Love by all. Hated by none. No one can say a bad thing about u. U gave everyone a chance. You love the inner of people not the outer. You never judge no one. You just love. Even when people did you wrong. You gave them more chances.

    Baby bro continue to look down on us. I’ll always look up to you. I love u and miss you so much!!!

  • Today a hard day pat. I went over moms and dads and no one was home. I pick your up your urn and I held it so tight and went into ur room and broke down while holding you. They say time easing the pain but it ain’t getting no better for me. Then as I was driving it started to rain and I was playing boys 2 men and in the song it said your be my sunshine after the rain. I need my sunshine and I need you here with me. You went to soon. I know I’m not alone but I feel alone. My baby brother is gone. And I can’t accept it. I love you
