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.
My deepest and sincere condolences to the family. My prayer group and I continue to pray for comfort and healing for the family.
I am sorry for your loss. I worked with Paul at two different companies and for over 10 years. He was fun to work with and will be missed, he left us too soon.
Hold on to your memories of Paul and let them carry you all through this difficult time. My sincere condolences to your family.
I will miss your messages . Rest in Peace.
I will be reading at Mass for you.

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.
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.
