"Gene and I were saddened to read of Paul's passing. Although our time of meeting was brief we saw what a great and kind man he was. Gene enjoyed their talks as roommates at the Elliot. He spoke lovingly and proudly of his family. Take strength in your memories and he will always be your hearts. Christine, you have a strong and loving family to ease your sorrow. It's hard to say good-bye to the love of your life. We are so sorry. Shirley and Gene Nesmith"
"My sympathy to the Erickson family. I first met Paul at Sanders and spent many hours working on cars especially my VW bug at his home. Sorry I cannot make it to the wake or funeral. Paul will be missed by all. My condolence to Cristine and family.
