    Paul’s intellect, friendly spirit, and boundless wit helped make this world a better place.
    A great life-long friend and cousin, whom I will miss tremendously until I, too, cross that Great Divide.

    I did not know. Such a great man and friend. My prayers for his close friends and family. I sold his parents’ home in Bellevue a few years back. He was a gentleman, and a man of honor.

    Ohhh this is sad news indeed! I met him when we both worked at Prudential Woodmont Realty 17 years ago. What a nice guy and great dad.

    I am sad to learn of this. Paul was just about my best friend, though 750 miles of distance meant seeing each other only occasionally. I loved him for his wit, charm, humor, intellect, and reason. I know he loved his boys and Dingo. I will miss him always.

    Paul deserved to live a long, long time. The world is not as good a place without him.

    My deepest sympathy goes out to you and your family. I hope you find comfort in the scripture at Acts 24:15. This is what our God Jehovah promises for us all. And we can look forward to what is written in Psalm 37:9-11 and 29.🌺
