Valerie, Dewey just sent me a copy of Paul's obituary that apparently was published in a Chester County paper. My heart goes out to you and your son on your loss! Having "been there", I know how difficult it is to lose someone who means so very much, but I can only imagine how much more difficult it must be after so many years together. I hope you're finding comfort during this difficult time in many happy memories and the love & support of your family & friends. Please know that you're in my thoughts and prayers. Sincerely... Eileen

Paul you truly have been great friend and will be sorely missed. We shared so many fun times together at concerts, baseball, hockey games, playing pool and all our church activities. You had an adventurous spirit, witty sense of humor and supreme sports knowledge. You usually won on our side bets over the years and delight in winning the bragging rights. Enjoy the view from up above and save us the seats next to you. Love, John & Sunshine O’Meara
