    I’m so sorry for your loss. I wish I had taken more time to sit and talk with Mr. Paul. I would have loved to listen to him talk about his time in service during the war. I have so much respect and admiration for him for serving. Rest in peace Staff Sargeant…….your military family has the watch.

    My brother Paul. While he was the second child, I was the 5th of 9. We were over 11 years apart. He graduated high school the same year I entered the first grade. He then went off to war, college, marriage and a job 800 miles away. I did not really get to know my brother until he and Doris visited Mary Ann and me while we were living in Paris and then after I retired to Bonita Springs, FL. As Paul’s health deteriorated I made sure I called him regularly. We enjoyed talking about the things we recalled from earlier times including siblings and relatives no longer with us. Rest in Peace, my brother. You will be missed.
