    To the whole family, My sincere and deepest condolences for the loss of Paul. He is a prominent figure in some of my earliest childhood memories and I know him to be an exceptional and loving Father to Lori and my sister Amy. My mother Christine was also deeply saddened at hearing of this loss and sends her deepest regards. (she is ill and unable to reach out personally) I know he had a good heart and a loving family and he will be greatly missed.
