Beth and Jackie, I just heard of Paul's passing. My deepest sympathies at your loss of Paul, husband and father. I knew Paul fairly well at Wakefield High, through sports and mutual friends - Paul was a gifted hockey player and a very well liked person - nothing not to like about Paul. Over the years, we only saw each other at periodic class reunions and we had some nice conversations about family and our kids. You are in my prayers. Mark

Beth and Jackie and family
We are sad and heartbroken for you and to hear of Paul's passing
I have missed working with him this past year, missed all the stories of the cats and and his trips to Maine with you both. There wasn't a Christmas Party that he didnt keet us laughing and smiling. Paul became more than a co-worker he was my friend. to know Paul is to love him, always kind and thoughtful
Sending love and hugs to you during this most difficult time
