    Paul was a wonderful person and an inspiration to everyone who knew him. He will be greatly missed. My only regret is that I didn’t get to know him better. His long ordeal is finally over, his suffering is ended and he is young and strong and joyful. May God bless Paul and his family and may God give him peace and joy.
