    My deepest sympathy to the family and friends of Paul. I’m going to miss this guy, I’m very lucky to have been able to develop a friendship over the past 10 years with Pauly. His sarcastic sense of humor always gave me a good laugh, a real joy to be around. I also knew that anytime I needed a friend to help I could count on Pauly. I know he was thrilled when I told him I had a piece of furniture to move and that one piece ended up being an entire bedroom set and dining room set, he had some choice words (jokingly of course) but was happy to help!!! Thanks for the friendship Pauly, you’re going to be greatly missed my friend. Leidy
