Stephanie’s brother Tate, and his then-girlfriend Kathy, visited Stephanie in 1973. Kathy recently sent me a big batch of pictures from that visit and encouraged me to share them with you. This was from a time before Stephanie knew Patrick. A few of these were taken in Barcelona and Switzerland. JPI’m the son of Patrick […]
Here’s a note from Tate about Stephanie: Tim (Stephanie’s son) and his wife Kelly came to visit last night and Carl had found some old videos of Stephanie and Patrick when they came to our home in 1993 and 1994. It was the first time Tim has heard his mother’s voice. She also sang a […]
Hello, all, Happy 2019! This is an interesting article I stumbled upon while doing some research for a project I’m working on: Why forest bathing is good for your health It’s about “forest bathing”, which is a term I find rather poetic and beautiful. I suppose that’s why it reminded me of Stephanie and […]
Stephanie’s brother Tate sent this poem to me to share on the site. You can see the handwritten version more clearly by clicking on the images, but the copies are faded so it’s typed here as well. Nobody, nobody at all is going to care when I die. My brother and I were our mother’s […]
Here’s a lovely drawing and note that I received from Stephanie’s brother Tate about Stephanie’s last words.

I have just completed the initial setup of the Patrick-Meadows.com web site, which is dedicated to Patrick and Stephanie. Over time the site’s content will grow with more pictures and stories, but for now, there are just a few items posted. Alison has the necessary access rights to add content as well, and Alison has […]
Found these in Patrick’s mail box, sent by Stephanie’s brother Tate on Hallowe’en 2016. Enjoy! Patrick probably did! JPI’m the son of Patrick of Meadows.
I found these on Patrick’s US phone, which he purchased in 2014 while in the States. JPI’m the son of Patrick of Meadows.
Over forty years ago, Patrick undertook the idea of conflating Stephanie’s story with that of Norman’s, as documented on this page titled A Romeo and Juliet Story. You’ve read elsewhere how Stephanie was forced to give up her only child (Tim), while Norman had no desire to be involved with his daughter (Bonnie). It appears […]
