Paul and Diane were two of the main reasons we loved our summer outings at Capon Springs. We met them ~1998 and were excited to find someone else from Wilmington DE. Boy were we surprised when we ran into them at First Unitarian Church of Wilmington later that fall. We had more in common than we knew! a bit later when Marc took a job at Dupont Hospital, who came to greet him on his first day but Paul!

Paul and Diane were dear friends. It is very sad to have lost both of them. Paul was a man of good cheer. It was always a happy time when with him.
