My parents Teresa and Leo Mahsling are sorry that they are unable to attend Paul’s funeral. My dad has fond memories of good times working with Paul at Thaman Dairy. Both of my parents remember fun times socializing with Betty and Paul at parties and The Milk Driver’s Ball. The were very sad to hear of his death and will keep your family in their prayers.
Kate Carnevale for Teresa and Leo
I am a close friend of Patrice and Matt. I met Mr. Rakel our freshman year at Wittenberg University. He was so proud of his beautiful daughter, Patrice, and always hugged us, and acted as if we were his kids too. He always was proud to wear his DG hats and sweatshirts and came to every Homecoming and Parents’ Weekends. He loved his family and was a wonderful father to Patrice. His infectious laugh and smile will be missed.
I would like to extend my deepest sympathies to Patrice and her family. All of us here in the Victoriaâ€™s Secret office are thinking about you. I will keep you and your family in my prayers.
Bob, I’d like to offer my condolences to you on the untimely passing of your brother, Paul. I was there in spirit with you, although I was ill this morning. My daily rosary today will be for the intention of the salvation of his soul. I wish you peace during your time of tribulation.
So sorry to hear about Paul. Betty and I exrend our deapest sympathy
to the family.
Betty, We noticed in this mornings Enquirer about Paul. We are so sorry and we send our prayers and love to you and the family.
We will be here in FL until the end of April.
With sympathy, Gene and Evelyn Hayden

May God bless you and your family during this time and always.
