  1. My husband and I are very sorry to learn the sad news about Paul’s death. Although we did not meet to many times, it was always very loving, pleasant and cordial. He was a very gentle man and I had great pleasure watching him to interact with his grandchildren, whom he adored. He valiantly fought his long illness with the help of his adoring wife, Judy who tirelessly helps him through the difficult months. Together with Judy, Youngho and Ginhee, we will miss him very much. Our most heartfelt condolences to Judy and his children with lots of love,

    Tamas and Jutka Ungar
