I am very sorry to hear of Paul's passing. It seems like just a few years since the whole family were citizens of Campbell. Denise, I didn't know you, but saw you once. Paul was a nice guy, and always dressed nicely and wore a smile. I am older than him. I am 66. I knew him in school.
Marcia, I am so sorry for you. You all were just a part of our small town of Campbell. I know all your family, especially your cousins will be with you in thought every day.
May God be with you and bless you and Denise. May memories hold your hand as you reflect on yesteryear.

I was honored to be working with Paul at Check Solutions. He was the best human resource director I have ever known. He was very helpful, courteous and professional human being. It is a great loss to the organization that he worked for and to anyone that has known him. My wife Irene and I send our deepest condolences to Paul's family on his passing, they will be in our prayer in this difficult time.
