"Hi Sweetheart,  I try hard not to be home and remember this day every year as I know how difficult it was for you as it was for me.  But here I am home alone watching a movie about a woman who lost her husband 2 years ago.   Want you to know that I love you and miss you every day. Your Hugger"

"We are best friends and always think of the times we spent together.  The many rounds of golf, with Nasser, throughout all of Southern California.  Our laughs of joy, our tears of sorrow we shared.  The arguments, there were many, that passed with times as they always do with brothers.  Our times in the Army with the trips we took, together with our wives, in Europe.  Especially, the one to Amsterdam with our wives, and John Connoy (I hope you've meant him in heaven);the night at the Red-light district.  You grabbing the breast of the statue in the park; we laughed are heads silly-and I have proof.  Nasser has always regretted not seeing you more and talks of you, always.  Good bye dear friend, for now, until we meet again.  Hopefully, many years from now.  Your brother, Lee."

"Happy Birthday Sweetheart

Today is a beautiful warm sunny day made just for you. This is your first birthday in heaven with God and the angels and your mom and my dad, Uncle Ray, Connoy and Bob. I imagine you are golfing or surfing with the guys. I am happy that you are no longer suffering. But very sad because I miss you and can't celebrate with you.
  If I could have just one wish come true today, I would wish you back here so we could spend the day together.  Your perfect day -  big breakfast at Coco's and drive down to Carlsbad or Dana Point or even a boatride to Catalina.
  I'm sending you roses. Jolie brought roses from you Sunday on Valentines Day because thats what you always did every Valentines Day and every birthday for all us girls.  How many guys do that?  You made every special day even more special.  I wish I could do that for you and we could enjoy them together.  I love you and miss you every hour of every day.  Happy Birthday Sweetheart"

"For Paul's very special day, his birthday, we wish him GOD's grace and peace for eternity.

We thank Judy for her friendship and her patience.  Our love and condolences to her for her loss.

Paul and I became, and were, best friends from our first weeks in high school.  We played sports together for the four years.  He could run circles around me in basketball, and usually did, but I could bully him in football, and usually did.

While we didn't join the US Army together, coincidentally, we ran into each other in Mainz, Germany, while he was in line at the Post Exchange. We shared a few leaves/trips together with our wives, while there, with other friends we met up with.  He was one of the first to meet my wife of 50 years, Ursula, a German citizen at the time.

While Paul, as with all of us, had his little quirks, we enjoyed many years together, especially on the golf course; and at Bob Olson's house with friends like Jim Reale, John Connoy, Harold Stonbraker, Gary Hunter, Tom Norway, Pat Burris, Jim Crawford, and many others.  Some he'll meet in heaven and others who will soon be there with him.

Keep watch over us Paul from your perch on high.  Ursula and Lee"

"I remember when Jessice, Jake, and Jayce were little and Grandpa Paul would take them golfing twice a week.  They learned to golf well because of him.  He was so patient with them.  Do you remember when Paul paid a pilot to take him and Jayce up and then he persuaded the pilot to let Jayce steer the plane.  He did some crazy things!!! Do you also remember every time he went shopping he would bring a toy back for Jolie.  We all had to tell him to stop spoiling her. I remember when Jolie started school and she would cry all day, he would drive to her school and sit in the parking lot just so she knew he was close by in case she needed him.  He was a kind and loving grandpa to Jessica, Jake, Jayce, and Jolie.  He will be missed."

"Judi, I'm so sorry for your loss. May all your great memories comfort you in the days ahead."

"If roses grow in heaven, Lord please pick a bunch for me.  Place them in Paul's arms and tell him they’re from me.  Tell him I love him and I miss him and I'm happy that he's at peace.  Place a kiss upon his cheek and hug him tenderly.
Remembering him is easy, I do it every day, but we didnt get to say goodbye and there’s an ache in my heart that will never go away."
