My Deepest Sincere Condolences for the loss of a dear member of your family. I briefly new Paul from morning minyan at Beth El Congregation. He was a joyful person. His attire always brought smiles, along with his witty humor and jokes. He was missed after he left for Chicago, and will be forever missed from those who knew him.
