A blog entry written in Paul's memory
Stereophile magazine's tribute to Paul J. Rosenberg
"It is with much sadness that I leave this tribute to Paul and my deepest condolences to his wife Lynda and their beautiful family.
Paul was my friend and a mentor for 30 plus years. He taught me how to drive a stick shift car and how to ride a motorcycle. We shared a love of music and audio equipment and whenever I had a question about something he was usually my first call. There are too many other things to list here that Paul taught me.
I will remember him as a nice man with a big heart. He was very generous and most of all a great friend."
"As those of you who know me, I can be considered too strong willed and opinionated, often about the way community things work, or don't. One of my concerns when my son started dating was the future of dealing with in-laws. When my son found his soul mate, I was blessed. Not only did he find a wonderful woman, but she came with the perfect parents and brothers. I could not have imagined better people to balance with my approach to things than Paul and Lynda. Taking four teenaged boys and four teenaged girls to Florida for Spring break? No problem. Have a graduation party at the beach house for the whole class? Sounds like fun. Strong in their own ways, I am so grateful for the balance that Paul and Lynda have brought to the mix. My life is better for having known them. Paul was taken much too young, but I will always remember his quick smile, his sincere ability to laugh at nonsense, and the fact that he always had his priorities right."
"I was saddened to hear of Paul's passing. We had so much in common...audiophiles; loved great music..eg Grateful Dead;Hendrix...and oh yes Formula One..Watkins Glen...Gilles Villeneuve...thanks for everything. Alex"
"My sincerest sympathies to you and your family, Genna. We worked together such a long time ago and I can still recall your remarks about your father, especially in light of public radio and music. He sounded back then like a very special man and one with whom you were very close. May all your wonderful memories sustain you during this difficult time."
"My thoughts and prayers are with you Genna and with your entire family. I am so sorry for the loss of such a loving and wonderful Dad and Man. I never had the pleasure to meet your Dad, but I know he was special. Your love beams in the way you speak about your Mom and Dad and your family. Anyone can see the Joy, Love and happiness in the pictures you have so lovingly shared with us. I know your hearts are hurt and ache with this loss now. But trust that his love will help you through this painful dark time. Your Dad left this world a beautiful loving family that will carry on his wonderful light and legacy in their hearts, he will never be forgotten and will live within your hearts till the end of time. Mrs. Rosenberg, I cannot imagine your pain, your husband is just so young to be taken from you and your children. I know I do not need to pray for your husband as he is safe and at peace, but I will pray for you and your children , that your hearts will not break from this tragic loss of a man that truly loved his family and his life. You are all in my prayers."
"I would like to give my deepest condolences to the family and friends of Mr. Rosenberg. Though I didn't know him personally, I can tell from the beautiful pictures that he was deeply loved, and will be sorely missed. Death is never an easy thing to cope with, and the feelings of pain, grief, and helplessness can at times seem overwhelming. I want to share a comforting thought that helped me when I dealt with the sting of death in my family. At John 5:28, 29 we read that soon "all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out." And at Isaiah 25:8 God promises that "He will swallow up death forever and...will wipe away the tears from all faces." Yes, take comfort in knowing that not only does God eagerly yearn to bring our dead loved ones back to life, He also promises to get rid of death forever! If you would like to read more comforting thoughts from the scriptures, please visit www.jw.org. May the fond memories you share bring you a measure of comfort during these trying times."
