So many wonderful memories, especially of our family summer picnics with Paulie and his beloved Virginia. As Dads cousin, all of us loved his company. And today rejoice in the promise of eternal life. Rest in peace, you wonderful man.

God bless you Dear Uncle Pauley. I will never forget your kindness. He was Dad’s cousin but we always called him Uncle. I was fortunate enough to see him 3 years ago when I was in Wheeling. He was 95 and still going strong. He loved his beloved St. Vincent De Paul Church and volunteer work at the hospital. We had a wonderful visit, and I was able to tell him how much we loved him. Sandy, Gary and I have great memories of him and his Virginia.
