Sending my sincere condolences to the family and friends of sweet Paul in this heartbreaking loss. I had the pleasure of getting to know Paul during my time working at The Woods at Canco and have thought of him often since I moved on. He was quiet but so kind and thoughtful with a sweet, almost secret sense of humor shared only when he was most comfortable with someone. Paul, you made a mark on this world and will be missed.
