To Paul's friends

Over the past several weeks, many of you have been thinking of & asking about Paul.

In the interest of clarity here is an update from Stephanie, Paul's daughter:

"As you probably know Paul has pneumonia & turned 89 on April 24th. He is bedridden & tires very easily. At one point recently I thought he might be able to accept a few visitors. I was mistaken. Although he rallies while visitors are with him, it is at a huge cost to him later. Therefore I have decided it is time to stop accepting any visitors. I appreciate all of your good thoughts. The most loving thing you can do now is give him a peaceful time at home with me, Pam & our hospice nurses".

Because it is impossible to respond to each of you individually, we will keep you all updated from time to time. Please spread the word amongst mutual friends.

Thank you for understanding.

Love, Stephanie
