    My condolences go out to the family at this time of Paul's passing. I will always remember the great times growing up with everyone together "up the lake", and at the house you owned in Kinnelon. I considered you all, (Claudia & Paul & Lorraine), all part of my growing up for you guys were there for most of it. That's when family was family. Paul will be greatly missed by many. I will always remember his smiling face who always made me laugh. Love Always, Cousin Diane Misito
