Rose, my sincere sympathy goes out to you and your family. He was such a nice man. I enjoyed seeing him and talking with him at Goldenagers. Sorry I couldn’t go to funeral. He was always ready to do some new show at Christmas and Atlantic City. He will be missed by all.

Dear Rose, Marci and Kevin and family, my heart broke when I heard that Uncle Paul was in the hospital. His spirit and positive attitude was evident in every way while he was well, and when he was ill. His family was the important and loved part of his life. Always smiling, greeting family and friends that made you feel good. My thoughts as well as my husband David McManus feelings we adored Uncle Paul. May he Rest In Peace, see others in heaven and enjoy, rejoice in their company and watch over us. My prayers to all the family.... Patti McManus
