    My deepest heart felt sympathy to Paul''s family. I enjoyed taken care of Paul while he was at the Alverno. We had some good talks. He was such a charming, nice, caring person. I sure whoever knew this gentlemen will miss him dearly. I'm truly blessed that I got to know him a little bit. I will remember his time at the Alverno & cherish the time we got to know each other. Prayers of comfort and strength to his family. I hope Paul and my husband Myron run in to each other in heaven.
