Than you so much for everything...as you would say all the time that I dont have to keep saying thanks. Yes, I do in my crazy tone as I'm so appreciative to have known you and grateful that you ALWAYS looked out for me. Big Paul, this hit hard and you will be truly missed. Like a brother from a different mother. You made my job so much easier as a Parent Coordinator for MPS. During stressful situations you were always around with that big kool aid smile and words of encouragement. And because of that I have continued to climb the MPS latter, I'm really going to miss you, singing karoake, taking back a few good cocktails and just your good spirit. Most of all, I'm going to miss coming to you department asking for favors (LOL). Now, I sit back and wonder who going to get my poster right, make sure all my duplicating get done and send out in a timely matter. I guess someone will but I rather it be you. RIH bro and I will get the memories alive. To the family, prayers to you all. Nita, keep your head up and God Bless.

Over 35 years man. Somehow this doesn't seem fair. I just hung out with you a couple weeks ago. So many emotions. You were like a big brother. I'm gonna miss seeing you at our spot every week talking about basketball and growing up in Sherman park or just checking that I'm ok in life. Paul was genuinely just a good guy! Until I see you again, keep a pool stick ready for me. RIP Mailman.

Prayers to the family. I have known Paul since living on 33rd Street back in the 80s as one of the neighborhood kids. His mom sat behind us every Sunday at Pilgrim Rest and I just gave him a big hug at Potawatomi this past February when he told me to go into the group on Facebook 33rd for life. Paul will always be known as a good guy. Always friendly, always smiling, always brotherly. He will be missed.
