VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. – Retired Marine Colonel Pasquale Cacace, known as Pat, lives on a friendly little corner in Sandbridge.
“We live in a neighborhood where we all look out for each other.” said Pat’s wife, Ningie.
And that includes the mailman.
“He’s friendly, he’s happy, we consider him family,” she said.
Two weeks ago, mailman Drew DePeter stopped at Colonel Cacace’s house like he does every day to chat for a few minutes.
“Drew noticed that Pat’s speech was off and that he was just not right,” said Kathryn Dozier, a neighbor.
