To Peggy Ann and the family,
It is with the deepest heart that I learned of Paul's passing. He always put a smile on my face and a hug when I needed it when my husband, Robert Schreiber passed away. One of his favourite stories was about a piano bench....
I hope that you will remember him with as much Love as they people here and at service remember him. He will be sorely missed in our community.

Dear Peggy Ann and Girls,
I am so very sorry to hear about Paul. A lot of good memories from living across the street, a lot of golf I played with him at Fox Glen and I loved his magic tricks. I haven't seen you Peggy Ann in a long time and the girls would not have any idea who I am but that doesn't change lots of good memories. Again, so sorry for your loss. You will be in my prayers.

As a fellow magician I enjoyed Paul's company immensely. He had so many wonderful stories of magic and performing to share, and spent many evenings at our meetings entertaining us with his unique brand of magic and comedy! Although I am saddened by his passing, to think of him even now puts a smile on my face, and if that's how Paul has affected me, then I know in my heart he was a great man, loved by many!

Life as "we" all know! Will never be the same...For those of us who have a few more par 5's left as well - We will remember with a smile, a greeting, a way the Admiral taught us.

Paul will be missed extensively by all who knew him. What you can say about Paul, is, he was a considerate man, lit up the room, a joy to be with, always a laugh, story to tell, magic to perform, was one of our new friend's of the past twenty years, (along with his family) being some of the best people you could every hope to be with. Always busy, always doing something for someone, or some cause. Paul you were looked up to by many, and made our lives better by you being a part of it.. we truly will miss you.
Love Cheryl and Mike J

My deepest sympathies on the passing of Paul. His zest for life was apparent in everything he touched. Peggy Ann, you & Paul were a great force together as evidenced by the wonderful circle of family and friends who surround you now. I am quite convinced Paul could sell a snowman an icecream cone in the middle of a blizzard! I'm glad he fulfilled his dream. I am praying for all of you. God Bless!
