From Fairbanks, Alaska my thoughts and special memories for Uncle Paul. I treasured seeing him in the band, and I even still have a 1960's era Olds trumpet which he gave me to play in school which was sent off to New York and refinished. A tough part in his passing is also seeing Polish tradition fading away, and I yet will forever cherish the treasure he was to this world. Lord willing, I'll get the trumpet out tonight and play some special tunes and share my fond memories with the family. Blessings to family and thank you Uncle Paul for such warm memories.

Had the pleasure of playing some band jobs and some jam sessions with Paul. He was so much fun to be around and did so well on the trombone. He was a fine person and will truly be missed.
