Dear Family and Friends—loved ones all:

The indirect impact COVID had on Andrew’s life is now directly impacting our mourning of him. It is with heavy hearts that we must postpone his memorial service and gathering originally scheduled for November 22, 2020 to some future date and time, likely even into next spring.

As we enter this holiday season, we implore you to take every measure to keep yourselves safe and healthy. Please utilize all the positive aspects technology offers to the greatest extent possible, and keep in touch with us and your loved ones virtually until we can all meet again in person.

On behalf of the Andrew Pauly family, with love and gratitude for all the condolences you have sent to us.

Deborah Pauly
