  1. 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.
