    Paulie, as your aunt, I have known you since infancy. Such a pretty child, and of course, a beautiful woman. Since your mother died, I have not been able to visit with you in person, but I have so loved your many cards, notes & pictures over the last several years. I know you missed your cousins that passed before you and you had become increasingly ill over the past years & recent months. I trust you are pain free now, & with your beloved parents & others that were close.

    My heart is with Cliff, Mickey, Sasha & your brothers. Rest in peace, sweetie, you are loved and missed. Iris
