Paul so enjoyed keeping in touch with his high school classmates and attending the luncheons whenever he was in the area. It was nice hearing from him when he called to just chit-chat.
My husband remembers the good times they had in the army reserves together. He was always fun to be with.
What a trouper! He will be missed!
