    My deepest sympathy to all of Paul’s family . Paul and my late husband, Martin were
    classmates at Penn. Later on we shared some good times at Cooper Place.

    I was Paul’s Caregiver for about 5 years and we had so many memorable good times together. He had a great sense of humor and was an avid reader. He loved to go to Barnes & Noble to sit and read with me. How he loved his ice cream and used to buy 2 gallons every week. He had a high tolerance for pain and just did not want to be bothered with it. (ha ha). He also loved to go for rides in the car. I will dearly miss him. My condolences to his 3 sons who were always supportive of me and my work with him. To Paul: I wish you all the best on your new journey.
    Blessings & Love
