I agree with Sandi. Paul was a good friend and always so nice and supportive. I liked him very much.

Paul was a very good friend for many years. He was kind, almost to a fault. He was very intelligent and had lofty dreams and aspirations. He was a good snow skiier and he and I went skiing often. He particularly loved jumping off moguls at Alta. He never got more than 2 feet off the ground, but he thought it was great fun.
