Extending my sincere sympathy to the family and friends of Paul Krochmal.  I was shocked and deeply sadened to learn of his passing.  Paul and his family were our next door neighbors for years on Lambert Avenue in Meriden.  I have so many good memories of that time period in our lives. Wish I had known him later on in life as well.  I was so looking forward to seeing him & meeting his wife at our class reunion & talking about old times.  Rest in peace Paul, you made a good name for yourself and you will be remembered for that.
