Dear mom and dad, I’m flying back to Washington and missing you both so much. I’m listening to songs like the trapeze swinger by iron and wine and thinking of you and holding you in my heart. Thank you for every moment- every memory. I wish I could be 5 again with you both playing in the house. I love you and all the sights smells and moments are with me. I’m especially grateful for my memories with you dad all the way to your last breath. Thank you for loving me. I’m grateful to be born of your love Love always Your daughter Laura

Dear Sue and all the rest of Paul’s family, I was so very sad to hear this news. I remember Paul from all my school days. It was so nice to reconnect with him on fb and at the MacArthur reunion. He was so kind and his ready smile was a welcomed gift! Rest in peace Paul. I know your memory will live on in those who you loved and who loved you!

I first met Paul years ago when he was in the NCPD Academy with my brother-in-law Tom Lamb. Fortunately I reconnected with Paul and got to know Linda as well when I retired and moved to Florida. They first visited me in St Augustine when my sister Rosemary was visiting me there. Having Paul and Linda over was like having a visit from George Burns and Gracie Allen. We laughed so hard my ribs ached. I got to witness them both experience their first Segway rides—Paul spinning around in circles and riding like a madman and Linda figuring Paul would end up in the river. Every visit was full of fun times playing board games, eating out, and golfing after I relocated to the Villages. Now they are back together and no doubt making everyone laugh in the great beyond. They brought joy and laughter and support and compassion to all who were privileged to know them. They live on in so many wonderful memories.

Paul, You were a very good man. Rest In Peace with your Sweet Linda. God bless you, Linda, your daughters, granddaughters, and your entire family.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

To Laura Michelle and family. I am so sorry for the loss of your Dad. He was an amazing person. My Tom met Paul at the Police Academy and were friends along time. He was always so much fun and a jokester. Your Dad is now with your Mom and is making people laugh in heaven. I will always remember the fun times we all had together. You both were so lucky to have such amazing parents that loved you so much. I remember those many days that we got together when you were little. My thoughts and prayers are with you both and your family. Paul left a great mark on the world. He will be missed.

Paul, I have few dear friends. You are at the top of the list. I will always remember all of the Mets Opening Day games we attended. I will never forget the last one. Mets Spring Training at Port St. Lucie. It was a great day! Always in our hearts. RIP.

Oh, Paul…. I am so sorry you had to leave this world so soon. You didn’t even get the chance to mourn for your Linda. But, now you’re with her, so the two of you can continue on forever. I will miss your light hearted silliness and your ability to crack a funny joke at almost anything. You made so many memories with your family and friends, and I am sure we will all smile at those as we think of you and Linda in the days and years to come. I am so sorry for my BFF Sue, as she deals with the loss of her big brother… Rest in Peace, my friends….I love you. ? kathy
