Paul lived at 113 Cedar Street‚ looking right at the World Trade Center building. Ladder 10 was at the back of his building‚ but he was with Ladder 5 at 6th Avenue and Houston Street. He was at home‚ off duty‚ when the first plane struck‚ while talking to his sister Jeanne. He told her he was going down to Ladder 10 to help his brothers. He was found under the South tower lobby on March 7th.
We had a wonderful family get together on September 4th‚ his birthday‚ with his two brothers and three sisters‚ his Mom‚ Dad and nieces and nephews. In retrospect‚ we are so happy we did it.
