Paul and I grew up together off and on. After our teenage years, I didn't see him again until 2014- unfortunately, another death in the family brought us back together. The truth is, I didn't recognize him at all. I hadn't seen him since he was 18. At the time, I was embarrassed about not recognizing him. My own cousin. I did tell him this and he wasn't offended at all. He had already had a lot of issues, he was recovering from a hip replacement and he acknowledged that he wasn't who he used to be, and filled me in on some of the details. We connected on Facebook and have talked back & forth quite a bit over the years. Once back when I was on the edge of drinking myself to death and writing stupid stuff on Facebook, he messaged me and asked if I was ok. He really did it. Middle of the night. I was not OK, but that little bit of concern and willingness to ask made me admit to myself that I was out of control. Did he save my life? Never know. He certainly had a hand in my sobriety. Life was good to Paul. It was, however, not always kind to him. To the best of my knowledge, he never complained. Yes, he did complain about the insurance companies giving him static, but he didn't complain about the situation itself. He was always hopeful that something would make him better again. He told me about having a boat up at the cabin that hadn't been run in years that he wanted to restore. He had other things he still wanted to do. It was those "maybe someday" dreams that are what kept him going through the endless pain. That and his family, furry and not. Paul, like all of us in our own way, made a great mark in this world, had as much fun with it as he could, gave the world his two daughters to make the world a better place. He truly loves Cassie and Alicia endlessly and talked about them frequently. When I had to make some rough choices regarding my son, he told me I had to do what I believed was right if I wanted my son to know what is right. He said he enjoyed trying to lead his daughters rather than shape them, but like all good fathers, wasn't sure he always did a good job. A very strange thing is that when I first saw Paul again, I had just given my Aunt's eulogy. He came up and told me it was the best eulogy he'd ever witnessed. Me; "Thanks. Do I know you?". Paul: "Yeah Scotty, it's me, your cousin Paul". Wow. After that, we had a schoolmate who passed on and he loved what I had written about Brian. In the end, what Paul has given me is a quick wake-up call on the shortness of life, and the importance of doing the best we can with every day to have a life that is happy, regardless of the poo that flies our way. Paul did not get the life he thought he would have. But he did get a good piece of it, and he made the best with the rest. He will be remembered and missed for a long time to come. As all good men are. (Paul, I hope you like this as much as the others! Notice I even got "poo" in there for ya!.) You are loved, and your life made a difference. Enjoy the Hall of Fame. -Scott

Words don't even begin to express how saddened I am to hear of Paul's passing. I am so sorry to all his loved ones including Lynette and his cherished daughters, Cassie and Alicia. I have known Paul for so many years and have so many wonderful memories of our times together. Some include but are not limited to: camping trips to Buffalo Lake, spending time at his beloved cottage, going to his mothers home for our school lunchtime and eating Orv's pizza while watching All My Children (soap opera) to Paul being the best man in my wedding and my husband being the best man in his wedding, also being our daughters Godfather to My husband and I being Cassies Godparents. These along with many other wonderful memories will live on in my heart. Miss you so much and will be praying that God will give the family piece and strength to get through the rough days ahead.
