    Dear Shirley and the Palma family,
    I am heartbroken at the loss of Paul much, much too soon. You all have my deepest condolences and sympathies. As you know, I worked with Paul many years at GE, Lockheed, and CAE and until 4 years ago, Paul and I carpooled together for years between our homes in Port Orange and work at CAE in Orlando. He was a perfect companion for carpooling and I will cherish the many, many conversations about a myriad of different topics during our carpooling and our lunches together. Paul was always so positive and a pleasure to be around. He actually listened and cared about what I had to say and even if we sometimes had different points of view on a subject, we could always discuss it earnestly and respectfully. During stressful times at work he had a way of making work less stressful. I will miss Paul for a very long time to come. Paul, may you rest in eternal peace my friend.

    It has taken me this long to write something because I still can't believe that Paul is not here. He was an awesome guy, who always, always, always, had a greeting or a kind word to say whenever we crossed paths. He is missed.

    My deepest and sincere condolences to the family. My prayer group and I continue to pray for comfort and healing for the family.

    Paul was a great boss to work for and with for the last 6 years. He will be missed. Praise God for healing. I pray the Lord Jesus will be at the side of those mourning to carry, comfort and strengthen them.

    Dear Family of Paul Palma, I am sending you my most sincere sympathy on the loss of Paul. We were in the Loyola Master's Degree program together. It was such a pleasure for me to get to know Paul and to work with him. He was an intelligent, thoughtful and very much appreciated part of the group! Your loss is all of our loss.

    I was shocked and so sad to learn that Paul had passed so suddenly. I have good memories of the fun and noisy Palma family reunions. I know that my parents loved Paul and visited him in Florida whenever they could. Paul was gracious enough to turn his house over to us when my dad and mom took my sisters and all our kids to Disney. In 2013, Bobbi traveled with mom on her last trip to Florida. I met them in Tampa and Paul took the time to come visit one evening. I know seeing Paul made my mom happy. Mom passed in 2014, and I will never forget that Paul traveled to NJ to pay his respects. He could only get away for a day. That meant so much to our family. My heart goes out to all his family as they grieve his loss. May the beautiful memories of Paul you hold in your hearts give you comfort in the days ahead.
    Love Carol

    I am so saddened and sorry for your loss. Even though I worked different programs than Paul I did have a chance to meet him over the years and I would see him a lot in the hallway. He was always so nice and would always say hi no matter how busy we all were, Paul will definitely be missed.

    Uncle Paulie you were such a great uncle. You will forever be in my thoughts, and will always be missed! I know you are now in a better place and you are up there with grandma and grandpa and great grandma. She is probably telling you to sit down and eat cause you are hungry (even though your not) she always made sure that we were fed. Love you and miss you very much.
    Your step-niece,

    My deepest condolences for Paul's family,
    Paul was such a nice man and always smiling when we would chit chat at work. He truly was a joy to speak to and be around and all of his colleagues will miss him here. Stay strong and may Paul rest in eternal peace.

    Dear Palma Family,

    Heartbroken is an understatement of how so many of us are feeling over the loss of our dear friend and co-worker, Paul. He was such a delight to work with, always smiling and positive, excited to see you and always happy to sit and chat. I will miss our conversations so much and just being in his presence. He was such a wonderful man that I am so happy I had to privilege to know. I pray that you all find comfort in knowing how much he touched our lives and what a special man he was. Paul will be sorely missed by his CAE family. May he rest in peace.

    Much Love,
    The Shives Family
