My condolences to the Warhola Family. I first met Paul at the 1993 Westmoreland Museum of art, Greensburg, PA, as an intern, I was seated next to him for a gala dinner and we closed the night, just he and I, with brandy dipped cigars on the front steps of the museum (not bad for an intern)...a memory for eternity. I am strengthened by the notion that we will be able to say good bye to him soon...one last time and will have

Michal, Gina, Isabelle Beam
