I have known Paul for many years as a fellow friend of Bill W. I haven't seen him for awhile, due to the pandemic, but have fond memories of chatting with him at Zippo. He was a good man and he will be missed in the recovering community. I won't be at the services because I am in the high risk population but wanted to pay my respects to Paul's family. May he rest in peace.
