Paul D. Mendelsohn, long time board member and volunteer of this organization under most of its names passed away last month, His memorial service was yesterday on Zoom. It would have been his birthday. To quote Mary Ann Wilson our founder and first President ” Paul was a great friend to NF.”
Not only did he and his late wife Helen support our local group, they also founded the NF-2 organization. He was also a founder and first President of what became the NF Network. When Children’s Hospital of Washington, D.C. started Camp New Friends for for kids with NF, Paul was at every camp for years.
He did everything he could to help the NF Community. He was a tireless worker, a good friend, and a patient man.
He will certainly be missed.
