Theresa, and Family. Paul was my dear friend since 1973. He loved everyone, and if you were lucky enough to know him you were definitely blessed! With his love, wit, loyalty to friends, fairness and faith made him the most terrific guy! His immense love and pride for his children and grandchildren gave him great strength. We all thank Theresa for her love of Paul and the best medical care she could get for him. There aren't enough words to express how much Paul will be missed, and I am so very grateful for all of the wonderful memories.
