Jeannie and family,

I first met Paul when he certified me for my scuba class at Beaver Lake in 1985.
John and I have such fond memories and fun stories to remember from all the Baker scuba trips we took together with Paul.
You joined us too on some of them.
He was a great guy, so kind and patient. It was always fun to see you around town.
We are so glad to have known Paul.
Our sympathy to all of you.

Jeannie, I’m so very sorry to hear about Paul. Sending so many positive thoughts and prayers to you and your family. I know it’s been many years, but I enjoyed visiting with him when I was Adam’s preschool teacher and then catching up with you when I saw you at the ReStore.
