I was fortunate to spend time with Paul over last Memorial Day week. I do not recall having seen him since HS. During two visits we shared so much of each other’s lives. It was certainly very special to me to spend time with him. Our only wish was that we had connected again earlier in our lives. We know he is looking down on us now. So proud to have had the time we had together. RIP Paul
I would like to extend my deepest sympathy to Paul’s family.. I went to school with Paul & we had so many laughs. Such a wonderful man. Love & Prayers ❤️ Marsha (Allen) Samuelson
