My uncle paul was such a good man. My brother and I loved him very much. Wish our aunt elaine would have reached out to us and told us the funeral details so we could have attended his funeral. Family is family. Such a shame because we grew up LOVING our Uncle Paul. He was a terrific man and we have so many wonderful memories with him in our life.
