My name is Mike Murphy. My wife, Lonnie, and I became dear friends of Paul and Maureen when I was Executive Diector of Tax Executives and he was Tax Counsel of McDonalds. One of many wonderful memories of Paul was when we came to McD headquarters and made a video on Transfer Pricing. Paul had everybody laughing including a Tax Court judge. All agreed that Paul was the “star”. What a wonderful guy who was loved and respected as he was equally proud of his family. Rest In Peace, Paul. Mike Murphy.

Dear Maureen and family,

May God's grace carry you through these sad days, and heal you in the days to come. We are there in spirit with you, and we will never forget Paul's wit, grace and graciousness, and most of all, his love for all of you. He was a class act, and so proud of all of you. We will all miss him.

Pam and I would like to share our deepest sympathies to Maureen and the Schaffhausen family. I have known Paul for almost 40 years. We worked together at McDonald’s and have stayed in contact since we both left McDonalds. We were both colleagues and friends. Paul was a great guy to work for and even a better friend. We are going to miss him. RIP. Jack and Pam Hildebrand
