I was so saddened to hear of Paul's passing. Norma, my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. It was such a pleasure to know and work with Paul for the last 16 years as he was such an integral and important part of the Messenger newspaper. Paul was one of the most friendly, hard working, loyal and trustworthy people I've had the pleasure to know. I always enjoyed talking to him about local sports and community politics. He will truly be missed. Rest in peace Paul.
