"Uncle Paul and Auntie Juliet are close family friends of ours. I have always considered a blessing to know them, and am deeply grateful for their love, concern and support over these many years to my family, and especially to my mother. I am very sad to hear of Uncle Paul's passing. Having read the other memories, I am very touched to see how much Uncle Paul gave back to the community, and for his many talents. May we also learn from his example: to show forth Jesus's love and to give of ourselves to those around us. My husband and I will continue to keep Auntie Juliet and the rest of the family in our thoughts and prayers."

"Paul and I worked together as AARP Tax counselors at the Williamsburg library. He was a quiet wise man with a sweet sense of humor. He always gave of himself and was kind and patient with all he encountered. He was a gentle man in so many ways. It was truly a pleasure to work with him and share some laughs and smiles.
My prayers go out to him and his family."

Vijaya and I are saddened at the sudden demise of Paul. I have known Paul for over 20 years and he was one of the most pleasant and friendly persons that I know. His good nature and enthusiasm made him seem ageless. He had a great sense of humor. He always had time for me. It was a privilege and a joy to have known him as a friend. He will always remain in my memory. May God bless you and your family.

"Dear Juliet, Christine, and Michelle,
I am so sorry to hear of Paul's passing. He was truly a genuine and authentic person, and he will be missed by many. The light he shone on all of us will never be forgotten. I will never forget how he treated my children as his own grandchildren from the moment he met them. And that's also how he accepted Nathan. I will never forget being at the house as a child and him offering me anything that I would want to ensure my comfort. He radiated warmth and love to all. Praying for peace for you all as you travel this journey. Love you all..."
