Hi Sue, Dan and Dave,
We are so sorry to learn of Paul's passing this past weekend. He fought a long, strong battle to stay here as long as he could with you all. I remember the days seeing him during a break from UMaine when I would come to Kennebunk as well as hearing him share stories with my father Tom about their own days at UMaine.
Our thoughts are with you all during these times,
The Yorks - Andy, Michelle, Maddie and Kayleigh
