    I always enjoyed visiting with Paul at Maloney’s. It was always a true pleasure. I’m better for having known him. To the family, I understand your pain at this time but take comfort knowing that his pain is now gone. Bless you all.

    I only knew your father for a brief time however, something had an impact on me that I cannot express to you or convey my feelings of connection and pride around him and his ‘story’. I won’t begin to suggest I know him or his life-I can only convey my feelings and I’m grateful to have know him.
