Paul Was a great man. I met him when we were both police officers and had a chance to work with him when we worked our days off on the CTA, He was honest and caring and loved doing his job. I also had a chance to see him at O'Hare while we worked security. Paul always was happy and in a good mood. He cared about his co-workers and the people coming through the airport. I am grateful to have known him and to being able to call him a friend. Paul will truly be missed. Rest in Peace Paul and rest in the home the Lord has waiting for you.
