    Barbara, We are so sorry for your loss. We loved when Bre was at Salve that we got to spend time with both of you. It was my chance to get to really know both of you. Paul was always such a loving Uncle. We were so happy when he married you. Your wedding was so beautiful. We miss you both and know Uncle Paul is at peace. Thank you so much for loving and caring for him. We are here for you. Love you always, Maureen, Bill, Bre and Mae

    So sorry to hear about my Favorite Newport Uncle!!
    Auntie Barb, Paul was so lucky to have met and married you, but most of all to have you by his side day in and day out.
    Paul, you were always there for me, egging me to come down to Newport for the weekend and/or Jazz Festivals.
    I am sure we will meet again at Yesterdays for brunch and Christies for outdoor cocktails beyond the Pearly Gates!!
    You will be greatly missed and loved by all!!!
    Until we meet again, may God hold you in the palm of his hand.
    We Love You Paul!!
    Kim & Joanne, Danielle & Ashley

    Paul was truly one of a kind. His sense of humor,
    Love of life, willingness to take the road less traveled, and bravery in the face of adversity were some of his greatest qualities. I feel fortunate to have know this incredible man for over 50 years.
    Knowing Paul, he’s probably playing golf or arranging a party with all his dearly departed friends.
    He will be greatly missed by all who knew him.
