Paul was the brother I never had. The miles that physically separated us never diminished my love and respect for him. My visits back to the Cape became less frequent as the years rolled on...going on 13 years now since I last saw Paul. In my mind's eye I see Paul as the physical giant he once was, full of fun and energy. I could never get the best of him whether in basketball or handball or any physical activity. He was the loyal friend I could count on when I needed a friend the most. He was an honest man and said what was on his mind. He loved his family and the Cape. The memories I have from 60 years of knowing Paul will keep me smiling whenever I think of him. I was fortunate to have Paul as my friend and will always cherish the times we shared. I will miss him dearly.
