Paul Elliott was my classmate and close friend at Landon from - I believe - our 7th grade year through graduation in 1967. Paul and I shared a couple of things: our love of music and our total lack of ability at athletics. Paul was an excellent organist and I loved going over to his church on River Rd. to hear him play and to fool around on the instrument myself. We were allowed out of required football due to the fact that we both wore braces on our teeth. This was something that was good since it allowed us to play tennis rather than football, but it was bad in that it was shameful to be a Landon student and not to play football. Paul's Dad allowed me to come and tag along at his architectural office since I was interested at that time in becoming an architect. Paul's parents did a great job raising Paul to be modest, sweet natured, kind, and sincere. Over the years Paul has visited us in Austin and a few years ago we had a really good post-retirement visit with him and Barbara. He and I reconnected at our 50th reunion at Landon last fall, and I got to go with him to see his marvelous and amazing mother. I was so shocked and so saddened to hear of the loss of this old and dear friend. My condolences to Barbara and the kids. I lost my Dad very suddenly many years ago: I guess that's better for the one who's passed, but it sure is hard for those left behind. I will miss Paul a lot.

Paul was a classmate at the Landon School for Boys, Bethesda, MD. Paul and I were best of friends, and we shared a ton of memories as recently as our 50th reunion last November. As the 1967 Class Agent, I will share all the information with the Class. I have received several notes already, and we wish the best for Barbara and the family.
Paul will be in our prayers, and we all stand ready to help when possible.

Mrs. Barbara, I was so sorry to hear of Paul's passing. He was such an inspiration to me during my years in EfM at St. Michael's. Praying for you to feel God's peace and presence surrounding you.
