Nobody could be prouder of a new home than Pat Patten and his children, daughter Melissa and son Jason.
The Pattens were among the Grove Street families whose homes were totally destroyed in last year’s EF3 tornado. They were huddled in the interior of the house and were not injured -- but they lost almost everything.
Max the Jack Russell terrier is the only member of the Patten household who can’t speak up to praise their new home near Milner. But he’s already guarding dad Pat, daughter Melissa and son Jason (not pictured).
