Visiting Sarah, Eric, and Paul last summer (along with my daughter, Suzy) was one of the high points of my year. Paul, like his mother, conversed easily about any topic with wit, wisdom and understanding. I am sorry that I could not be there to celebrate his life with you yesterday, but I will not forget Paul. Today is Easter. Therein lies all our hope.

Kaiser family when you are so distressed that we do not know what to say in prayer, God discerns things that is left unsaid, for he knows our true feelings. (Psalms 139:4) Please accept my condolences at this time.

God speed Paul. You have always been such a character! Your style of dress, your expressions both facially and verbally...all added to your incredible charm. Love to Sarah and family.

I wish I would have had the chance to get to know Paul better but I did get to know him through you Sarah and because of that I know he was an amazing person, just like his Mom. Love and prayers to you and your family.
