Not sure what to say?

My deepest sympathy to the Cass family.

My most sincere condolence's to the family. Sending Love from an old friend...

So many great memories. He was a great example of a Christian man and a dad. He loved his family. He will be playing music forever.

Our love is extended to the family at this time of loss! We loved the opportunities when Paul would talk about his children and how much he loved them poured out through his expressions and laughter! We also shared our common love for motorcycling and would exchange stories!
May Gods comfort you during this difficult time of loss! Love, Glen & Julie Boprie

May the love of friends and family carry you through your grief.

Paul was a wonderful person & will be sadly missed by everyone.

May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.

Sorry for the loss of your father. To my classmate Scott just wanted to say sorry

Although I didn't know Paul personally, I knew he was a great man. I have a personal relationship with his daughter Tracey, and she is a wonderful person. My condolences to his family and may God bless each and every one.
