Helen, Sharon, Danny and Family,
So sorry to hear of Paul's death. Paul and all of you have been wonderful neighbors and friends for so many years to Daddy, Mother and our family. I am so glad I visited briefly with Helen and Danny and we talked about Paul's health and Mother's health. Mother sends her sympathy and love -- as do all of her daughters.
