    Anita, Cheryl, Marsha and Wendy – So sorry to hear of Paul’s passing. I recall my childhood visits to Aunt Evelyn and Uncle Fred at the Leslie farm. Paul and John were already teenagers and Paul still wanted to play with us. Throughout his life, he and you, Anita, kept that Blagden connection alive. We will miss Paul. – Cousin Bryan and Joanne Bennett
