    My thoughts and prayers are with you and your loved ones. I am sorry for the loss of your dad.

  • George and family,

    So very sorry for your loss of your dad. My thoughts are with you all.

  • Paula, George and Emily:

    Sorry for your loss. Paul and I go back a long way, to the Abigail Adams Elementary School, the Quincy public schools, BU commuting together and the ROTC, and in more recent years the 41 Club. He was a great guy and a good friend who will be missed. RIP.

  • I am so sorry to learn that Paul has passed. We used to commute together to BU; sometimes with Tom and Ken. Paul introduced some of us to Finnish saunas. We had great laughs running from the sauna into the wintry lake in Pembroke. He was a groomsman when Mary and I tied the knot on June 23rd, 1968. A charter 41r. Most importantly a great friend with a terrific smile, laugh, and attitude toward life. You will be missed. A life well lived. Joe
