    So many fun memories of playing tennis with Pat and Paul, sharing meals and loving the sweet friendship of my daughter Jenny and Amy. Good times together at Sugar Mountain. Amy, thanks for contributing to a song in my little songbook when we were en route to Sugar! Loved your mom and dad and will treasure our times together.

    My condolences to Paul’s family. Paul and I played many sets of tennis at Olde Providence over the years. Will probably not miss his looping serves on which he scored so many points on me but I will miss playing with him.

    Paul and Pat were patients for many years and the staff was very fond of them.Paul always brought a subtle humor and a smile and they would often comment about such a committed loving relationship. I always thought he had a solid dignity and was very centered in his life and faith.Such a good man.

    I just got the sad news. I’ve known Paul for a number of years, first at OP and then as a neighbor, and we served together on the board at Keswick. Paul was a great guy, always willing to pitch in, never complained, and made us laugh with his dry sense of humor. He’ll be missed by friends , neighbors, and fellow tennis players. Rest In Peace!
