    PJ and Caitlin, your dad was a part of our family for a long time when he dated my sister Rita, may she rest in peace. He was always telling stories and was proud of his home and children. May God provide you with comfort and peace as you walk the path of grief and sadness. My deepest sympathies.

    Our sympathy’s to our cousin Paul’s family. We grew up together. Even though we weren’t too far away in Erie, we would visit our Aunt Mill (Mildred) and our Aunt Ann (your Mom and Gramma) every summer as kids. Paul had a huge kind heart. He played a big part helping my Mom (your aunt and great-aunt Mary) calling long distance from Erie in 2002 to aid Aunt Mill in Greenville when she fell ill and couldn’t be reached by phone. His follow up with Aunt Mill’s progress to my mom was professional as well as heartfelt and caring… that’s how Aunt Ann raised All of you…and that day, Paul did not disappoint…later on informing Mom that Aunt Mill was in safe hands that day. We thank Paul and admire him for his service as a Veteran, professional Police Officer, and family member. He gave his “all” for all of us.
    Rest in peace, Paul. Love you.

    Sorry for your loss. Paul was a great guy. We spent a lot of time with him and Rita going to Moose conventions. He will be missed by many. I went to school with his sister, Maryann and spent a lot of time at their house. I was hoping to come today to see Maryann and the rest of the family but I’m not feeling well this morning. May Paul rest in peace.
