    Ruth, I am very sorry for your loss. I enjoyed being able to take care of Paul. Early in this week I asked him his name. He said “Helen Smith! How is that for a name? I asked him if he had another name. He said “Ruth Coffey”. I asked “and who are you married to?” He replied “ah some jerk!” He never lost his sense humor!!! He loved you very much and looked forward to your calls

  4. God bless my Special Friend Paul. Nothing will erase the memories that we shared! Rest in Peace. Carl Bruno
