    Kate and Family,

    Paul was a very special uncle. I have fond memories of him patiently teaching me how to play softball, the many times I stayed at your house during summer vacation all those years ago. To know him was to love him. We are so sorry for your loss.

    With love,
    Larry & Sue

    Mrs. Hartz, Steve, Sandy, Mike, and Pam:
    I am sorry to hear of Mr. Hartz’s passing. There are the wonderful memories of hurrying to finish those summer dinners so we could hurry to ‘our’ baseball diamond across from your house on Windemere. The endless hours of Mr. Hartz standing ther pitching to us and being our coach and mentor, espcially to those of us who were sports challenged. Steve, it has been many years since I’ve seen you but please know that all of you are in my thoughts and prayers.

    Linda and Shim LaGoy
