Jess and family,
Sorry for your loss. I was always in such awe of the Copple Family on Brighton Ave. Paul symbolized what it meant to come from Chelsea. Certainly a sad passing at this time of Thanksgiving, but I thank God for lending him to us for awhile. He made things all that much better for the rest of us. God bless.

To Joanne and the Copple Family
My deepest sympathy at your loss. I grew up with Paul in AC I lived around the corner on Morris ave and I believe he lived on Brighton Ave. You are all in my thoughts and prayers. He will be greatly missed and was great guy.
