My thoughts and prayers are with you and family, sorry for your loss.
I used to see Paul every time when I was working with my dad, Raymundo, I could tell all the shrimpers had a special friendship with Paul by the way they interacted always joking and laughing. I just remember him smiling all the time when I would see him and always having something funny and positive to say, those are some great memories I had with Paul. i just wanted to share that memory with you'll.
God Bless
