    Aunt Donna, the kids and I are sending you our prayers during this difficult time. We truly loved Uncle Paul. We will remember the beautiful song he sang at Thomas and my wedding and the special cooking lessons he gave the kids on how to make the most delicious pizza. He will be forever in our hearts!
