Carol, I am reading with sadness the loss of your beloved husband Paul. He was a sweet, sweet man. Kind to all and animals.
He loved you so much and always told me he was the luckiest to have you. Please know I am thinking of you. I am in Croatia now.
My best, Deidre (formally worked at Cablevision)
