To the Bopp family:
I am sorry to hear of your Dad’s passing, however, I am sure you are all comforted by the fact that he is now with your mother. He was a great Levittowner, volunteer fireman and patriotic veteran- part of that great generation! Rest In Peace Paul Bopp, and thank you for your service!!

So sorry to hear my cousin Paul passed away my prayers are with the family. I will always cherish the moments on Willow Ave. in Towson Maryland at granddads house with Paul and Jack when we were children. We use to tease granddad by throwing rocks at the tin garage and having him chasing us with his cane. I am so sorry I cannot attend the funeral for the last moments together. I have to take care of my wife and have a sonagram test on my arteries Wednesday. I will definitely will be remembering Paul in my daily Mass on the internet Wednesday morning.
