Dear Mimi, Karla & Maria: I was very sad to learn of Uncle Paul’s passing from my sister last night. I often remember him and your mother whenever I pass by the house on Mill Street in Pittston. Their visits to Scranton and the times I was able to visit their home are some of my happiest family memories. Your dad’s integrity and dedication to your family were always admired. Your memories of your dad and the little things you shared are treasures you will always have and never forget. Please find comfort in that your dad, mom and Paul are now together and whenever you think of them you will remember their smiles and love they had for you and your families. Sorry I cannot be with you in person to celebrate your Dad’s life. Your Dad and your family are in my prayers today.

Paul was my car pool buddy at Timet for a few years in the early 80ís. He never complained if I was late and he was always a good listener. Paul loved talking about his children and what activities were going on with them. The day I got laid off was my day to drive. I was upset and crying so Paul drove my car home for me. He was truly a nice guy. I only had a chance to see Paul a handful of times over the years, but he always remembered me. I know how hard it is to lose a parent – he will be greatly missed.

So very sorry that we could not attend but there were situations beyond our control.

We have many wonderful memories of your Dad and his family. We thought the world of him and admired him. He was a “Great Man.”

Wish we could have been there with all of you and would have loved to see everyone.

Please know that our thoughts and prayers are with all of you.
