To my cousin Paul,

To see someone like you who was so outgoing, so carefree, and a world traveler end up with such a horrible disease was devastating and is still so hard to wrap my head around. How could this happen. I am feeling extremely selfish wishing you were still here and Although im extremely sad and heartbroken that you are gone, i am happy at the same time knowing that you are no longer suffering. You put up one hell of a fight. I will forever miss you, your bright light, your amazing, infectious personality and all of your jokes you told. You have made such an impact on my life and i will cherish all the time we spent together and all of the memories we have. The world is a darker place withhout you here thats for sure. I look forward to the day we see you again. You will forever hold a special place in my heart.

P.s. i still dont know what you ever did for work (inside joke) lol.

Love and miss you so much!!!!

When I think back on these times
And the dreams we left behind
I'll be glad 'cause I was blessed to get to have you in my life
When I look back on these days
I'll look and see your face
You were right there for me

In my dreams I'll always see you soaring by the sky
In my heart there'll always be a place for you
For all my life
I'll keep a part of you with me
And everywhere I am there you'll be.

TerriAnn, Carol, and all of beloved Paul’s family and friends, meeting brilliant Paul in Lourdes, France during our pilgrimage was a miracle. Where Our Blessed Mother appeared to Saint Bernadette 160 years ago this year, he spoke often of his enduring and appreciative love for each and every one of you. His legacy is in your thoughts, prayers, remembrances, and in your celebration of his life in the resurrection mass. His narrative as you share it and the miracles of faith, love, charity and hope that he said he experienced in Lourdes, may help you. I pray you may come to a place of peace and contentment that Paul is in more merciful arms among the communion of saints, ever present with you. God bless you all. May he Rest In Peace, May eternal light shine upon Paul. With great admiration and love, Julia

Paul, you will be missed dearly. You were a great friend and an absolute joy to be around. I admired your strength and optimism while fighting such a horrible disease. I am deeply saddened you have left us but am happy to know you are in a better place. God Bless you Paul.

Paul, I am very saddened to hear of your passing. I was very lucky to have known you and been a part of your life when we worked together at the airline. I enjoyed the many times we hung out together in Deep Ellum, drinking a few cold ones and listening to music. One of my fondest memories was getting to join you on a portion of your journey to visit every MLB stadium in a season. Three games in one weekend! Those are the times I will always treasure.

Rest in Peace my friend. I will miss you.

I will miss you sweet friend! I will miss sharing those random texts of pics of ballpark hotdogs and really bad Tony Romo jokes. You always made me laugh. Rest easy and have pumpkin pancakes all year round. No goodbyes…just see ya later!

Pumpkin Pancakes:
Back some years ago Paul and I used to go to this place in Dallas to eat…the Dream Cafe. He liked the pumpkin pancakes which were only available a couple months in the fall. Sometime later that year after Thanksgiving or Christmas had past we were there and he ordered them and the waitress told him they were no longer available. He looked back down at the menu for a bit and looked back up at her with a smirk and said…”Ok then…I’ll have the pumpkin pancakes”. This bit went on for a while before he chose something else. We went to the Dream Cafe fairly often and this routine played out EVERY TIME! He would order the pumpkin pancakes…the waitress would tell him they were not available…he would go back to study the menu…snap it closed and then very joyfully order the pumpkin pancakes again with a mischievous grin. One of my favorite memories.

Paul, you warned me this day was coming, yet I refused to believe how someone so young and full of life could possibly pass away at the age of 56. I enjoyed all the times we spent together in Dallas, and the time we went to 7 MLB games, coast to coast, in one, short weekend! I enjoyed visiting you in Barcelona and partying all night long. Those were the days, my friend.

Jan and I went to Happy Hour yesterday in your honor and reminisced about the good ole days, like when Jan was the star of one of your movies. I’m sorry I won’t be able to make it to New Jersey this weekend to say my proper good-byes, but I will be there in spirit. Rest in Peace, good buddy. Until we meet again, Kerry
