Not sure what to say?

I continue to be crushed by Paul’s passing. He and I worked together at Leber Krebs and quickly became family. Paul was like a big brother to me. He took care of me always. I have so many stories and memories in my mind of all the wonderful things he did for me and everyone else. Every day he would walk in and have a New York Times newspaper to give to me and quiz me later on in the day.

Saw TSO this week. Great show as usual. They did a tribute song to their mentor.His creation will live on. 20 years already

Watching TSO dvd and so thankful for all that you left us.

I have seen every show since TSO starting touring in Cleveland. Not seeing you on stage in 2017 left me heart broken. However, such a brilliant tribute to you with Safest Way Into Tomorrow. You are dearly missed.

I can only imagine what heavens choir sounds like now that you're there. You were missed this year on the tour, but your presence was felt. I know You are so proud of the band for the shows they did this season. RIP to a one of a kind. Alone we are finite. Collectively we are infinite.

We were at the show last night in San Antonio. Loved it as usual. We've gone fourteen years in a row and have never been disappointed. It's a Christmas tradition for us.....We were so sad to hear of Pauls passing....Such a talented man but more importantly, from the messages I've read ,he was a wonderful human being...He definitely left this earth too early but what a legacy he's left behind..How proud his family must be of their son, brother, husband and dad.....You did a great job,...

Your music will outlast us all god bless

You would be very proud of your proteges of TSO. You taught them well and they will remember you always. WHAT A BRILLIANT MIND . You are sadly missed.

I was not aware until now ... don't know how I missed this. Condolences to Mr. O'Neill's family and to TSO. We plan to see the band on your winter tour, and we've enjoyed two shows in Pennsylvania in recent years. Thank you, Paul, for founding TSO, an orchestra like no other, and sharing your talents with us. Rest easy.
