Dear Carolyn & Family,

Keeping all of you in my prayers. I worked w/Paul at Swatch although I saw no mention of his working there. We both worked on the "Pick & Pack" line. We had some interesting conversations and laughs together. I recall him telling me how he met his beautiful wife while she was his Mother’s nurse. I’m sure Carolyn took great care of Paul during his lifetime. I find comfort in Ecc.3. May it comfort you as well. Peace to all….

In love,
Milli Lawrence
