Dear Lois, Liz, Hannah, Ken, and Brian,
Your husband and Dad will be missed by all of the Barattas. What a good man – thank you all for sharing him with us. When my Dad passed away, a friend sent me this quote that I've kept in my wallet ever since. It reminds me so much of Paul - "He didn't tell me how to live; he lived, and let me watch him do it. "
Much love and peace.

Your spirit will live on in all of us.

I have many memories of Paul and Lois visiting us at the Farm is Ashby and visiting with them at Aunt Ada's & Uncle Harry's home. I will always treasure the memories when I was young of my Dad laughing with Paul and myself just listening and learning about the family. Lois & Pau were an inspiration to me at a very young age on how to live life their way and with enthusiaism. I think I learned how to give back to the community from their story of the Peace Corps. much love Terry Spiegel Knockwood [one of Joe & Doris' girls]
