May Fr, Paul be received into the loving arms of God. Thank you for the service you gave to us while you were at St. Bridgets in Framingham. You were kind, gentle and loving, a fun priest who was always smiling when you were with the students and children.

May the Good Lord Always Bless and Keep You in His Loving Care. You will always be remembered as our Pastor at St. Michael's, officiating at our daughter's wedding; baptizing my first grandson. Your straight- forward homilies touched my heart; I still remember the one where the little bird was "doing the best he can". Words I still live by.

Rev. Curran,
Sir, I would just like to say thank you for your years of dedicated service and sacrifice-first for our Country when you served with the U.S. Army during the Korean War and later as a Priest in the Archdiocese of Boston. And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.
