I am so sorry about Paul's death. When he lived in Greenfield I visited with him once when they had a new bar opened up and some of my friends wanted to check it out. I remember when he was a baby and I was visiting Carole and you brought him home to your parents home. My thoughts and prayers are with you guys.
