My heart and prayers go out to Paul's family in their loss of husband, father, step-dad and grandpa. Though I haven't had much contact with Paul, living far away, I do remember what a sweet and caring person he was, and what a sense of humor. I do know my sister, Connie, and her children and grands loved him very much, and are going to miss him and his loving ways. I pray that God will bring you all peace and comfort, and time will heal your hearts. He is in the Lord's hands now and will continue to be love, unconditionally, as he was in life.
Paul Louy and I will miss you very much. Thank you for filling that empty space in our hearts as a father. Your smile lit up the world. Your love , compassion, laughter, caring, protecting , for us will never be forgotten. Thank you for making my mother the happiest woman in the world for the last 17 years. I believe you were sent to her for a reason. You have a beautiful family and gorgeous grandchildren whom will all miss you. I promise to take care of mom for you. We love so much. No one will fill ur spot again in my heart. May the angels protect u always. Ur my heart. Love Louy and Kelly Seba
My thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends at this time, with the loss of Paul Brenner. My childhood is filled with memories of him. Going on trips to Traverse City to stay at a " real hotel," going to the cottage, watching Pink Panther, telling jokes, the Roadway truck on the street, and that infectious laughter are just a few. My whole family loved him, and he will be missed.
My Dad, my role model, my best friend. You will be missed so much you will never know. I thank you for all the good times, the good memories, and the good life you provided me. The world will never be the same without you. I am so happy that you can now, once again, be with your wife and our mom in heaven. I will love you forever. Your son, David.
mom and siblings, i am so privliged to have known our step-dad paul. i was happy when paul asked to marry mom. i knew from the start that the Good Lord couldnt have sent a more precious man into our lives.its funny because i too have wondered if our own precious father didnt send paul to step in to keep fulfilling our happiness. as old as i myself am, i still learned from paul. he never interferred in our lives but never stopped being there for us. he was a funny non-shelfish caring loving human being and i am very grateful that we all got to spend so many precious family times with him. we have lots of siblings, grandkids,nieces,nephews, and i dont know a one of them who didnt love paul. when he made our mother so happy, he also made us happy an we will cherish the moments we had with him. paul, we love you an will never forget you. you were more than a step-dad. you were an angel and for that, we love you. we will help eachother get through this difficult time but we will never really be without you as you will always be in our hearts.
Lisa, Shelly, David and Chris-I'm sorry about the loss of your dad. He was a wonderful man and I have great memories of road trips to Western, going to the house on the lake, skiing and many other fun family events. He and your mom were so kind and wonderful to me and treated me just like another daughter! He left a wonderful legacy for you 4 to follow.
I knew Mr.Brenner growing up and he was a wonderful family man. Love and condolences to all of his family.
I feel as though I knew Paul although I only knew him through his loving family. He seems to have been a fun-loving, family man and I know you will all miss him very much. He was blessed to have a wife who took such loving care of him in his later years and step-children who loved him like he was their dad. What more could a person ask for?
Lauren I'm so sorry for you and your family's loss.God bless you and your whole family.
Paul it was a pleasure knowing you. I wish I could have known you better, but due to the circumstances regarding my mother, it was impossible. Thank you for always being kind to me, Tim and the kids. In addition I'd like to thank you for your service to our country, without men like you we could not enjoy the freedoms we have today. Now you are reunited with the true love of your life Anna Louise and will spend eternity together. Rest in Peace.
Paul was a great addition to the family and it was an honor to know him. I am sad for my Aunt Connie and cousins who are grieving such a loss. Very obvious how much Aunt Connie loved Paul and was so committed to him in his final years with the devastating disease of Alzheimer's that Paul and the whole family were stricken with. You are all in our prayers and thoughts. Love and blessings,
Angil and Bernie Ritchey

So sorry for your loss, God Bless you all during this difficult time.
Aunt Connie sorry for your loss. Our prayers are with you and your family.

Paul my very first memory of you was when my mom worked at The Donut Hole. She talked about the card you sent her while you were vacationing in Alaska. I thought what a sweet guy. Asking my mom to dinner in a card from miles away. Then date night came. All of us kids at moms house all giddy for her but still feeling a bit awkward because of my late dad. Well I say we all Won! I've said it before & I'll say it again " My dad would have wanted my mom happy" You did that for her & our family. Sometimes I wonder if My Dad hand picked you! He loved to make his family happy & you did that. I Love you Paul. Thank you for your Huge Heart & The many laughs & memories. That laugh & smile of yours will live on through us. What more can a girl ask for. I feel blessed that you were a Great Step Dad to me. Always In My Heart You Will Be~~
Lord please create a loving transition for Paul. Surround his family and loved ones with overwhelming love and peace.
I was very pleasantly surprised to learn after reconnecting with my old friend Lisa that her mother had remarried (Miss Connie) We all met for lunch soon after. This was my first introduction to Paul. A big warm hug soon followed, he was such a very caring man with an unbelievable sense of humor. Through conversation I learned that he and Connie were very active and enjoyed life to the fullest. He fit in to the Aneed family seamlessly. I was just amazed by how close and loving the relationship was with all of them. Paul was such a gentle, loving, personable, funny man and God couldn't have sent a more perfect person to step in the shoes that this family needed/wanted/ and whole heartily accepted. Never have I seen so much unconditional love given and received from a step-parent to his step-children. Connie's children loved him and respected him, and it was undeniable when you were in their presence. I'm so glad that all of them "found" each other, there was so much happiness, love, silliness and plain old, good times at every family gathering. My warmest thoughts and prayers go out to Miss Connie, who took loving excellent care of Paul, and to all the children, and grandchildren who helped Connie in many and all ways. God Bless you all!!
Allthough I never knew Paul personaly I know from his loving family what a wonderful Man he was. Paul, thank you for your couragious service to our great nation and your unlimited sacrifice for your family and friends.
May almighty God welcome Paul into his kingdom and ease the pain and grief of his beloved family.
