Not sure what to say?

I met Paul a little over 30 years ago as an incoming freshman at Lake Forest College. He was one of three roommates of a close friend who was attending LFC. Paul and I instantly became friends and spent the next four years sharing many great times. Just turning 50 myself, I find myself looking back at the people who have made my life so wonderful, and Paul is on my list. I've been recently trying to search for Paul and connect up with him again when I came upon his obituary. Words can't...

My deepest sympathy to Paul's family...

My condolences to the McDowall Family.

My heart aches with the loss of our old next door neighbor whom I will always remember as a happy spirited young man with a sincere interest in other people. Love and Blessings to Betty, Maureen and Paul's entire family.

My condolences to the McDowall family for your loss. In particular my thoughts are with Paul's mom, Betty. My mother and Betty were cousins (Leonard). She always spoke so proudly of Paul - and all of her children.

Your family is in our prayers.

Maureen, you are in my thoughts and prayers. I'm so very sorry for your loss

I was so sorry to hear of Paul's passing. His office was right down the hall from mine at ColorSpan. What a joy he was to work with - always smiling and upbeat. He went out of his way to be kind. Rest in peace, Paul. You are loved!

I always knew that Paul would do something good with his life, which is why I don't understand why God took him so soon. But I do know that his father and Steve were there to greet him when he arrived in heaven. My heart goes out to the McDowall family.

Maureen & Family:

I am so very sorry for your loss. Paul was such a vivacious and positive person. Just the few times of being in his presence, I vividly recall his enthusiasm and confident energy. I am glad to have known him and may his spirit live on.

My thoughts are with you at this time.

God Bless,
