It is with regret that I did not visit Uncle Paul and Aunt Theresa more often. The last time was when my mother passed and they invited me to their home. They were so gracious and he reminded me so much of my father. He had an incredible sense of humor and I know he will be greatly missed by his family.

To the entire Cahill family:

I was sad to learn of your Mom's, and, now, your Dad's passing.
Both of their lives were well-lived. I have many fond memories of you all from "back in the day." Please accept my heartfelt condolences.
