Uncle Paul was loved by many including myself. He had a huge impact on my life. I remember so many wonderful times spent with Uncle Paul as well as Aunt Isabel and Sherri.

Our families were very close and we spent much time together. The Moores did a lot of entertaining and growing up seemed our family spent most Sundays at the Moore home.

We would spend many hours sitting by the fireplace listening to Uncle Pau's records which included Chet Atkins, Stan Getz, Roy Clark I can hear Uncle Paul’s laugh as we would listen, or not listen to PDQ Bach.

In the summer month’s we would swim in the pool and watch the Clarke boys launch my sister Debbie from atop the pool deck to what seemed like clear across the pool. I think they were trying to see how close to throwing her out of the pool they could get, good times HAHA.

I remember Uncle Paul grew tomatoes in his garden, they were the largest tomatoes that I have ever seen. One slice of those tomatoes would practically cover the entire plate and we would feast on fried tomatoes and corn on the cob.

There was always laughter at the Moore home, somehow I was put in charge of mixing Brandy Alexanders for the Ladies during those get-togethers and I remember making quite a few pitchers of that delicious beverage no doubt contributing to that laughter.

Being in the Polish American String Band with Uncle Paul as well as my Dad and brother Bill was another highlight, I have so many wonderful memories of parading down Broad street with those guys and have revisited those memories many times.

Uncle Paul was a very talented musician as Sherri described, he taught me to play guitar. I could never hope to be the guitar player Uncle Paul was but I enjoyed learning from him and still play guitar to this day thanks to him.

Perhaps my fondest memory of all was, at the age of 13 becoming a member of the Gordon Three and two Moore, a band which included Aunt IZ and her beautiful voice.
