    We did not know Paul well, but Linda graduated with Jana; we both went to high school with Terry and Kay; our daughter Shannon went to school with Jeff; and we were neighbors across the street from Phil and Kay on Union Street for many years. Our hearts go out to all of you. It's wonderful that Paul celebrated his 100th birthday not long ago, surrounded by family and friends. May he rest in peace. And may God grant his comfort to each of you as you rejoice in your happy memories of Paul

    I'm the girl that drove Paul in 2 Veteran's day parades. He was such a sweet man and I so enjoyed
    being his driver. He was so very proud in having served his country. Prayers to his family.
