Private Condolence

I wish to take this moment to tell you of my dear little brother and one of my best friends. Paul was always the the emotional compass for our private, reserved family. He loved more fiercely, felt more deeply and was the first to fight for his family. In spite of his own tragedy , he
was the first to crack a smile and make a joke. Even when he was younger, his zest for life and to always have fun, even if it got you in trouble, was contagious. I’ll deeply miss his passion and spirit, as I always wanted to be a bit more like him. I will never forget our adventures, fights and time together. So proud of the man you became.Love always, your big brother.

I won't go into detail about the RED SPEEDO incident at our pool when Paul was about 5yrs old but all the Family will remember.
I can still hear his voice saying " It weren't me Uncle John"
You will be missed Paul!!!
Love Paul & Brenda
