Dear Family,
Our thoughts and prayers are with you as you say goodbye to Grandpa Paul. We will all miss his broad smile with a wink and wholesome belly laugh over a good joke.
Will heaven still let him play the Lottery or MegaBall?

What wonderful memories you have of him. Treasure each one.

Dear Paula, Bill, Andy, Krista, Sara, and Korin,

I can picture “Grandpa” walking down the streets of heaven with his map, donuts and some Italian, not Polish, meat balls. He is giving children chocolate milk for which they will be delighted as my crew was. From the days of Pearl Ave, South Binghamton that is, to now, we all have such fond memories. Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this time.

Lori, Bill, Heather, Chris, and Matt

Paula, Sorry for your loss. Your Dad & mine not only lived on Pearl Ave, but both men served with honor in the South Pacific at the same time. I,as do my brother and sisters have fond memories growing up across the street from your family.
You are in my prayers.
