Paul was always a pleasure to fly with. We shared a cockpit many times during our Hughes- Airwest years. Always a gentleman. -- William (Bill ) Brewer, Captain retired, Hughes Airwest, etc. I'm sure he will be missed by all who knew him.

Thank you for all the good times you shared with my family and I. You earned your wings way before any of us could ever have imagined. All of us will always remember you and the lessons we learned from you.

Uncle Eddie is someone I wish I had the opportunity to know better, however he came to my rescue when I didn't know it and when I needed it the most. I'm looking forward to the day I will be able to know and be with him for eternity.
