Condolence & Memory Journal

Heartbroken! Knew Paul well at JMH

Kathy, I am so very sorry for your loss - 33 years - you two made many wonderful memories! I knew Paul in high school. He was an outstanding vocal artist - a member of the Choir and All-City Choir. Paul had a wonderful sense of humor - he told real jokes (all clean & appropriate, imaging that!) and I remember his beautiful smile. He also was a wonderful dancer - and in those high school days, we had many dances. I lost touch with him and most of my high school classmates as I (and they) went on to live our lives & chase our dreams. But I remember Paul Much as a wonderful human being. Sorry he is gone.
