  10. So sorry and so sad to hear of Pauls quick passing after his recent diagnosis-but he wouldn’t have it any other way-so practical and such a great attitude- he did it like Sinatra-“his way”- in all our years dealing together we never had one harsh word to each other- I will always admire his spirit- skiing, smoking,golf, travel and a few drinks in the mix-he wrung every last drop out of his time with us. Paul was totally devoted to Luci- he found a real peach that he could enjoy life with- we guys know these things……just the way he spoke of Luci I knew…Theres a lesson here for us all to go out and live- enjoy our time here-ski-golf-nap- smoke if you enjoy it-have a few drinks and laugh all the crap off- its been a real pleasure Paul…I’ll miss your laugh
