  3. Jo Marie condolence:

    There are no words to express what sadness the last couple of years have brought. I am honored to have known Paul, Barb and family. I always admired the love, respect and devotion Paul (and Barb) had for each other and their family—each child and grandchild a reflection of that love. I pray that the beautiful memories of all the years together one day replace the sadness we all feel now…..brighter stars will shine in the heavens above.
    Love Jo Marie

    Your Grandpa, Gene was my Mother’s (Dorothy Laz Zimka) brother – my Uncle Gene.
    My husband, Don & I, have lived in Florida for many years, and did not get to see Paul all that often. Although there was the distance, I fondly remember our childhood as cousins. Paul was a family man and will always be remembered. Try to smile as you recall each special moment with him. Embrace the memories of all his hugs. May the Lord hold each of you in His arms at this time.
