    I used to live in New Rockford and I really appreciated Steve (Papa) and Helen and their family. I worked for them in restaurant. Helen was fantastic nurse, too. I am so sorry for your loss.

    I will miss my brother Paul and i invite all those who have some story to share to do so i would appreciate it as it makes this time less difficult to know he made some impact in other peoples lives.He told me that on his urn to write i did my best now let me rest.Pauls sense of humor was dry and he refused to cry when he found out about his cancer he had hoped to see spring and was busy tying up loose ends when he ended up in the hospital for his final breaths and even then thought he was going to be able to finish what he started.He leaves behind 6 children who i know he loved with all his heart it is evident by the things he kept.I will miss my brother Paul greatly.
