    This family has been such a big part of my life in so many ways for so many years.. Every single one of them have showed up for me when I’ve needed them at different times in my life. Through good times, and bad health they’ve all been there. I can tell you they are strong, they are mighty, they are family. Sending you all the most love. Rest in heaven Paul. Give Rosa the biggest hug. We’ll miss you.

    You have all been such a wonderful part of my memories. Before I left to go to the Army, I came up to see you, Ruth was still with us and we had such a great time. I am so sorry that Cousin Paul has left us. Please know how much you have always meant to me. Aunt Marie was always a big part of our lives too. God bless each of you.

    I have great memories of our family gatherings,
    especially the ones at grandma and grandpa’s
    lake cottage. They were memorable times.

    I’m so sorry for your loss. The video was a
    beautiful memorial for Paul.
