We are so sorry for your loss. I remember working with Paul at Amana many years ago. He was just a young man then in College and we had many conversations and actually a few good times even at work. I spent a good bit of time with him as a young officer and got to serve with him and work with him a lot as he was promoted up to a LTC and we talked a good bit and shared with each other on different occasions. I really enjoyed serving with him and spending time with him. He will truly be missed. Rest Sir until we meet again.
My condolences to his family and to those who worked with him at the VA Tennessee Valley Healthcare System. He was dedicated to the veterans. His life was rich with service to others I enjoyed working with him at the VA, and I know he will missed by all.
