    What a great guy with a BIG HEART and constant smile. Paul was a great teammate in football and softball out of the Town Field Tavern in Dorchester and I had many happy Sundays having a few adult beverages after one of our games. He would text me on just about every holiday to wish me a happy one (even if we hadn’t talked in months). You will be missed my friend! God obviously needs someone to have his back, no questions asked!

    Paul had an extremely big heart ❤️ always willing to help people out. I’m certainly going to miss him. I’m sure he up in Heaven saying hello to everyone he meets and offering a helping hand if you need him as that’s the type of man he was

    Paul always had a kind word, matched with his big handsome smile… I often wondered
    about Paul’s inner most feelings, I know that might sound odd, but he was so extremely kind and warm to people that I’ve wondered was it because he innately sensed other’s deep sadness and sincerely wanted to lift their wounded spirits???… I would not be surprised, for Paul’s kindness was truly Heaven sent. I wish I got to know him better and also got to spent some quality time with him. May you now know the kindness in Heaven that you shown to everyone on Earth Paul… Hope to see you one day again Paul, til then, God’s speed my kind friend!
