    My deepest condolences to all of you. Joanne, I know you loved him dearly, sending hugs and prayers your way. Paul was such a sweet man, always had a smile on his face. I apologize for not making the wake, my husband had emergency travel. Again, so sorry to hear this shocking news.

  4. Thank you to everyone who came to pay their respects at the wake, to those who sent flowers, and those who left entries in this guest book. Hearing from so many people how much my father was loved and how much he loved his children and grandchildren was a great part of an awful experience and it truly helped me get through this. Thank you Aunt Linda for being by my side throughout the wake and making sure I knew who all of the people were, I appreciate that! I’m also very proud of my brothers who helped not just my father but me, and were fine examples of what a good son is. Lastly thank you to Joe and Bobby who showed me wisdom and strength that I couldn’t have done without last night. I’m getting ready for today’s funeral and just wanted to let people know these things and to say that I’m forever grateful for you Dad, I hope I can one day be close to the man you were and I’m truly going to miss you…. Rest in Peace, I love you Dad ❤

  7. We were shocked and deeply saddened to hear of Paul’s passing particularly as we had enjoyed his and Joanne’s company only last October on their most recent visit to Ireland.
    We had many discussions over the years tracing family history and Paul was immensely proud of his Irish roots. I clearly remember his obvious pride as he recently showed me his Irish passport. A close friendship developed between us over many years.
    Farewell dear Cousin and friend of over fifty years. You will be greatly missed.

    Milo, Nan and all the Delaneys in Ireland.

  8. We are saddened by the passing of Paul. Paul was the cousin with the family connection to Ireland. He found Ireland at a young age, and a lifetime of connections was established. He was the motivation for George and myself to seek out the family with Sister Betsy, and Sister Dot.
    We enjoyed the company of Joanne, and Paul, their experiences which were shared in our visits together were most enjoyable.

    Our prayers and thoughts are with you all. May the memories of Paul help you during this difficult time. I’m so saddened to have lost a good friend. Even though we were miles apart, our Mayflower Rd bond kept us close. I’m so glad I was home this past August and got to talk with Paul. He will truly be missed.

    Love and Prayers,
