The happy day comes 18 months after the tragic death of Patton's wife, Michelle McNamara, who passed away suddenly aged just 47. At the time, Patton wrote an obituary for The Times which read: "Her family is devastated but can't help remember all of the times she made them laugh or comforted them, and they smile and laugh themselves. She hasn't left a void. She's left a blast crater… Five days after Michelle was gone, Alice and I were half-awake at dawn, after a night of half-sleeping. Alice sat up in bed. Her face was silhouetted in the dawn light of the bedroom windows. I couldn’t see her expression. I just heard her voice: 'When your mum dies you're the best memory of her. Everything you do and say is a memory of her.' That's the kind of person Michelle created and helped shape."
