Guestbook

  1. I would like to extend our condolences to the Tagliatela Family for the loss of Paul. My uncle Vincent Civitelli (Red) and Paul were very good friends, and golfing buddies. When I was growing up on Bradley Avenue I remember Paul coming over and picking up my uncle on Saturday’s during the summer. My brother Bob would caddie for them on many occasions.

  2. Paul was a gentle caring person who proudly served our Country. I recall his living on Gorham Avenue in Hamden, CT close to Helen Street School years ago. Please accept my deep sympathies.

  3. Uncle Paul was the kindest person. He always spoiled me when we visited him and Aunt Julie. I have not been back to Conn. for a while to see them. I will always have fond memories of him. My sympathy to the Tagliatela family.

  4. We remember fondly the many visits with Paul and Julie over the years when we were kids. Paul was a gentle, generous and friendly person. We extend our deepest sympathies to Julie and her family.
