Emily, Kathy and Christy,
We know that the loss of your truly devoted husband and father must be a crushing blow.Paul was a very special person. We hope that you will each take refuge in your faith at this time, bearing in mind that his good soul has moved on to a place where he now enjoys "The Peace that passeth all understanding". He will always watch over the three of you; and, in times both glad and sad, you will remember his example. Move forward with courage. He would want you to do so. And, if we can be of help in any way, please feel welcome to call upon us. God bless him and you,

Dear Emily, Kathy and Christina,
So saddened to hear of Paul's passing. It seems just yesterday I called Paul to see if he might consider filling a Trustee vacancy on the Village Board. That began many years of fine and devoted service to this community. He had a good head for both facts and figures and a solid understanding of municipal law and finances. Too few realize how much Paul gave to the village. Our deepest and sincerest sympathies....
