Dear Paul, I was so sorry to read of your father's passing in the newspaper today. When we were at PSU, I remember you talking a lot about Pgh and your talented father who was a Symphony Conductor. We live in the North Hills of Pgh now. My sincerest sympathy on the loss of your father, Janice (Stupak) McNulty
