Not sure what to say?

Nancy and I just received a note from Jane telling us of Paul's passing. He was my mentor and our great friend. We are devastated. Our love and sympathy to Jane, Sarah, Peter, and Susan.

I'm so sad to hear about Paul... I worked in Poli Sci at Northwestern for two years ('08-'10), and I just loved him. Such a dear man.... I think of him and smile. My sympathy and prayers to his family.

Paul was a fantastic mentor to me and my friends while we were at NU and even after. The legacy of his strength and kindness will live on through all of the lives he's touched, but he will be missed greatly nonetheless.

I am very deeply saddened by Paul's death. He was a wonderful, sweet man who brought so much to
so many. My deepest sympathy to Paul's wife and family
