FRANKEL--Paul David. Paul, the Frankel and Fagenson names have stood together for over 50 years, since our fathers first went into business on the New York Stock Exchange trading floor. Margaret and I simply can't believe or accept that you are gone. As a partner and a friend you reminded us to laugh, enjoy life and care for one another. You were ahead of every trend in art, style, travel, you name it. How are we ever going to get a reservation at the hot new restaurant, where you knew the maitre'd before we had even heard of the place? Who is going to make us laugh when we feel like we want to cry? Who will remind us that family is most important? Who can fill the emptiness in our hearts that was filled by your friendship? You spared family and friends from the anguish of watching you suffer but robbed us of the precious time to say a proper farewell. To Evy, the one and only and Justin the best son one could have; to Larry the only brother, thank heavens for Rachel, Jackson and Ava and for friends like Sam and Kathy. Paul your legacy lives on in all of our hearts. We will cry for a while and then laugh out loud remembering one of the hysterically funny situations we shared that was a part of being your friend. The Fagenson Family
