Marilyn, Michael and Patti, I am so sorry for your loss. I have always thought of Paul as such a great person, he never seemed to age, and was the reason why I'm here . Paul introduced my parents, Jim Logue and Betty Hickrod, they married and the rest is history. I don't know if you know this but my brother James Paul Logue was named after your husband/dad. Due to the virus we will not be attending today but know that our heart felt sympathy is with you all as you say goodbye to a wonderful man. The Logue family, Debbie Yellig, Tera Bailey, Gina Hill and Jim Logue.
