Judy, I am so sorry I am not able to attend your father's viewing or funeral but I found a picture that I sent to Jim. It is of my siblings, me, and your dad taken at the last Christmas we were all able to spend together. Uncle Paul was a special person to our family and he has been and will be sorely missed. BL and I are both sorry for your loss.
