We are so sorry to hear of the passing of your Dad. We will always remember the love and devotion for his girls. He then shared that love and devotion to each of your families. We wish we had been able to come to the party you had for him. We will always remember his smile, laughter, and warmth. Such fond memories of him, your Mom, and all of you girls. PJ and Carrie always thought of him as “Uncle Paul.” May all the happy memories bring you peace.

Sorry to hear of the loss of you dad. I’ve been a little slower getting started on my Christmas cards and he was on my list. It was wonderful hearing from him last year at Christmastime telling me about his family. Keeping all in my prayer I will have a Mass said for the repose of his soul here so I will be able to attend God Bless Love & Prayers

I am ao very sad and sorry for your loss. Such a large part of childhood was you guys at our house or us at your house. Going to the pool, having picnics, playing games, going to the farm. Your dad was always there, keeping an eye on us and cracking us up. Now, he will continue to watch over all of you, just with a set of wings now. God bless all of you. All my love and prayers, Jill.
