I'm am so saddened by the loss of my husband. I did everything I could hoping to bring him home. Paul was the greatest friend, father, grandfather, just became a great grand father, brother, uncle and husband. For the last two years Paul has had numerous medical issues. Rest In Peace my love. You will be sorely missed.

I cannot put into words what Paul meant to me and hopefully, the passage of time will make it easier to accept that he is no longer in my world. First I need to say that Paul’s passing is not only my loss. His beloved wife, Ronnie - the next generation, Leslie, Michael and Heidi who were so loved - grandkids, Danielle, Michelle and Mike who brought baby Brie, his great-granddaughter into the world - it was love at first sight. My daughter, Debbie meant the world to him and he came to rely on her. My son, Cory and his wife, Irit and my lovely granddaughters, Shunit and Ariel, his nieces were recipients of his strong feelings. I felt a need to list our entire family as Paul was dearly loved by all of us. What meant the world to me was that he cared, REALLY cared for all of us as we all did for him. Rest In Peace my beloved brother - you earned it.

With Heidi as a friend, was a privilege and a treat spending any time with Paul, from high school til now...always sage advice, a poignant story, or just genuine interest... frank advice about relationships/career/the market/life ... stories of the dogs, the fish, family and of course the love of his life, Ronnie. Always will admire the comfort they shared, his acceptance of Everyone, and his own take on things. So blessed to know ya, Paul. RIP

You will forever be in our hearts and our memories. Your wit, sharp mind, kindness and insightfulness were apparent the first time we met on a weird open field with dogs running wild before there was a real « dog park ». Those canine friendships developed into human bonds that saw Dick and I sharing so many happy memories in Florida and in Canada with you and Ronnie and our many pups. Dick’s breakfast with you and Maury where the financial and political troubles of the world were solved over eggs and coffee have always been the highlights of his days in Florida. Our fondest love to Ronnie and the family and of course to Prince. We look forward to a hug Ronnie when we finally get back to our Aventura home. Love Dick and Deborah xoxo

Paul, I love you and miss you so much. I remember everything you taught me and you will always be in my heart. You were the King of the Aventura Dog Park, a dog’s best friend and the veneer police. Convoy and I are here to give Prince and Ronnie extra hugs. Always, Lisa
