ADDENDUM:L Joan Halbert has informed us that contributions can also be given to the St. Francis deSales School (www.desalesschool.net) and Philadelphia Community Legal Services Legal Resources Fund (www.clsphila.org). “Paul was not a church goer (or Catholic) but he was a great fan of Sister Constance and Sister Jeannette and their tireless work for the children at deSales School, and the Legal Resources Fund at CLS (where Paul worked for many years) was an idea he had expressed to me in the weeks before his death.”
