My deepest condolences to the family and friends of Paul. The news of his death is heartbreaking. I am so sorry. Paul and I were in the same class at MAU. During our last year we were in the first/pilot year of a theater arts class that was all seniors. It was a real hodge-podge of students from the class of '83, who knows if any of us would have gotten to know each other the way we did if it wasn't for this class. I feel lucky to have gotten to know Paul through that class, he was so special! He was sweet, kind, smart, and wicked funny. I admired how he put himself out there in that class, he inspired me to push myself too. Please know I am holding Paul and all of you in my heart during this difficult time.

I’m sorry for the loss of Paul. I remember digging for night crawlers with you and Todd when we were young . How you and Todd laughter at chasing your little sister around with the worms. Lol. And the time you flew all the way to Arizona. To try to get your little sister back home with dad. I hope your now in peace my dear brother.

Paul was a very caring person. When my family and I had no place to go for a while, he took us in and made us feel welcome. He was also protective and patient. When I knew Paul many many years ago, he was in pain, quite often. He still had a silly and goofy side to him. To all his children and the rest of the family. My deepest sympathy; I'm sure he is with the angels now and in no more pain.
