Being so far from family most of my adult life I had not had much contact with Paul, however, Dave (my brother) and I were looking at how we spent so much of our childhood with many of Aunt Louise's kids, our cousins. I am so sorry to hear about Paul and my heart and love goes to you and your family.

I was fortunate to grow up with Paul as like an uncle to me. He got me jobs when I was a teen and we would go fishing . I spent a lot of time with Paul and I’m very sad I didn’t get to say goodbye. You my friend will be greatly missed, Love your old Pal Ryan.
