MaryLou, I am saddened by this news. I have nothing but happy, happy memories of times at the lake with Kresna, Annie, and Paul. I, and my parent, Uncle Steve and Aunt Mary, will hold him, you and your son in our thoughts and prayers.

Sincerely, Maria

Mary Lou and John Paul, Mom and I were saddened to learn of Paul's passing. He'll always have a special place in our hearts as a wonderful neighbor and friend. I cherish the memory of the last time I saw him, when he made such moving comments about my sister after her funeral.

Dear Mary Lou and JP:

My thoughts and love are with you both. I am so happy that I got the chance to meet Paul during your last LA visit. Just thinking about him telling me the stories of taking JP to work makes me smile. I am so grateful for that day. Love and strength to you both. Amy
