Uncle Paul,
You were my favorite uncle and a father figure for me in my teenage years. Sharing your interest in early personal computers resulted in me getting interested, and in fact, lead to me going to college and building my entire career on this foundation you set for me.

Your crazy antics always kept us entertained and made us laugh. You will be sorely missed, but will live on in our memories.

We love you.
May you Rest In Peace.

Dear Uncle Paul,
I was so sad to hear about your condition. I hope you didn't suffer too much. I prayed for you every night.
I will miss the letters between us, you were one of my Lacasse Family connections.
May you rest in peace, you were a wonderful person. I am sure you will be remembered as a friend , brother and uncle to many others.
Love you always,

I have so many good times to remember with Uncle Paul. He was an important male figure in my early teens and beyond, almost like a father figure. At one point he lived close to my high school and I hated that long walk home so I would just show up and ask for a ride home which he always did for me, probably grumbling about it the whole time! We talked on the phone often, talking a lot about computers. When he moved back to Maine when I was in my early 20's, it was pretty sad but over the years we always kept in touch through phone calls and emails. In the past 5 or so years we emailed each other on a regular basis. I always knew I had to "answer Uncle Paul's letter" and I always procrastinated so in my head I am still thinking I need to write him back but then remember he is gone from our lives.

I'm going to miss Uncle Paul very much. He was silly at times and I loved him.
