My Dearest Irene, I count myself a fortunate person to be part of such a wonderful family as the Conways' and have had Paul as a brother in law. Lots of great fun and memories with Paul at the center. My boys talked about the family cookouts with Chef Paul and how much fun they always had at your home. We all did! I especially loved our trips to Vegas. Remember when Paul was the only one to ride the roller coaster on top of the Stratosphere...we dared him and he did! He was the man that day, haha. The family dinners and Texas Holdem games after were so much fun. I will miss him and his quick wit. He was a really a wonderful guy. My deepest sympathy to you and the family. Love, Linda
