I have many memories if my Uncle Paul. 1. Being in his wedding. 2. Going to visit my Nana Kardel and Paul introduced me to the music of Stevie Wonder. 3. Going across the street to Miantonomi Park to go sledding. Thanks for the memories Uncle Paul. I am so sorry for my cousins and their families loss and send my deepest condolences.
