  5. I went to school with Paul, and his brother Mark and my brother Rich were good friends. Paul was such a great person. He was so awesome. I also had the opportunity to take airbrush classes from him, he taught me a lot, and was a pleasure to know all these years. He will be deeply missed. My deepest sympathy goes to his family.

  6. Wow, what a shocker. Paul was just another one of my sons. I will never forget his enthusiasm when he brought me his dinosaur and wanted me to make bib overalls for it. What a project. Love to the family and to you especially Jackie. I never met Heather, but feel I know you too. With my deepest sympathy.

  7. I am terribly saddened to hear of this news. Paul and I worked together several years ago at P.S. I Love You, when he was the framer there. In fact, I have several pieces of art he framed, and I always think of him when I see them. He was a wonderful man and we shared many great conversations together. I’ll never forget his passion, his spirituality, and especially his love of Ozzy! 🙂

    Rest in Peace Paul. You will be missed by many.

  8. Paul was a great teammate and friend. He was as smart a guy I had ever been around. I am sorry I can not attend the service. Paul was loved by us all and will truly be missed. I know Paul is in a better place. May God bless his soul.
