Paul was definitely one of my very best friends in this world. I also worked for Paul many years and I have so many wonderful memories of our time. He had a special humanity about him that allowed him to see when someone was in need. He was generous to a fault. I learned so much from him about when and how to show kindness. His life was special to me, I will always miss my friend. He had a brilliant mind and a unmatched sense of humor. Kaz is correct, there will never be another like Paul. My heart goes out to Joanie and all his kids. He loved all of you more than words can express. My life was made better for knowing him.

Paul and Joan (friend since Jr HS) were a great couple, funny, exciting and generous to a fault. Paul was a very unique man, who said it like it was, loved cigars, family, friends and his job. I know he will be missed by many. RIP Paul Best healing for Joan, as she continues her journey. Love You

Just read back my post from last night and I must confess that I should not write anything down when I've already had 3 glasses of wine.
With that being said I do apologize to Joanie for my mistake.
Paul has been my friend since 1987. We have traveled together, done remodels together, and have gone to dinner too many times to count. I'm going to miss Paul for the rest of my life.
Rest in Peace my friend.
