    Goodbye for now Paul. I am sure we will meet again in the next existence. Say hello to Rhea, Dad and Mom and your parents too (Peter and Mary). I see by the pictures published that you haven't aged any more than I have (denial is a special gift given to us older folks). We will miss you but just for a while.

    Love Jon, Marilyn, Diane, Holly, Amy and Jon2

    him was,as good an athlete as he was,he was so
    unassuming and just an all around nice guy.What a
    bowler he was!
