    My family and I are very saddened by Paul’s passing. Paul, Connie and I have shared and made many memories over 50 years. Always hospitable and welcoming if in Mi or Fl on our get togethers, family weddings, baptisms or dances at the Legion Post. I will always remember his chuckle & laugh! Rest In Peace my dear long time friend. You will be missed ❤️
