Uncle Paul, Thank you for the hunting and fishing lessons. You were always one of those people I looked up to as bigger than life and would be here forever. Your kindness and laughter will never be forgotten.
Love, "Little" Paul

We will miss Your laugh, your huge hugs, and your big tender heart. You were like a brother to us! Our favorite was in Canada. The bear hunts, sitting in the backyard looking out at the fields, telling stories, and all the laughs. Remembering your huge smile when you finally got that big bear, Priceless !! We'll miss the steamers, lobsters, and all the buffets with you. Rest In Peace Big Paul. Love you bunches!

It's so hard to imagine our lives without you as you have been a part of our family for so many years. I have known you for 27 years and you and Bob go back so many more. I will miss those evening knocks on our door where we would sit and chat on our porch until after dark. I will miss the lobster/steamer dinners, the fires in our back yard, the holidays, the birthdays, the super bowl gatherings, evenings out for ice cream, reubens with extra sauerkraut, and the trips to the Chinese buffet. Bob will always treasure the memories of your overnight fishing trips and bear hunts, not to mention all the antics in building our house!
I will always remember you as a kind, generous man with a great sense of humor and wonderful laugh. I thought we had more time with you.

I did not meet Paul till later in his life but it did not take long to build a great friendship. I will miss his company and humor. His passing is a great loss to so many people.
