    I had the distinct honor and pleasure of not only working with Paul on the fire department, but off the job as well with Frankie Vona, both legends to me. We had many laughs and shared experiences, and I am saddened at his passing. To his family, I hope that your grief is assuaged somewhat by the high regard and love everybody had for him. He was a good man, and will be missed.
