"Whenever you saw Paul he would always have a trinket for you. Some you would wonder about and others you would say this is perfect. We were going over the many we have had over the years. The Christmas windshield fluid, very useful. A Key chain which separated, I asked for two please which we still use. A perfectly organized nuts, bolts, various screws storage box with extra spaces to add to that we have used many times and had to replenish. After 9/11 he handed out Whistles that you could share with others that worked in high rise buildings and many more of these trinkets. He seemed to always be thinking about others while out on his quest for treasure and when he saw something he thought was useful, he picked up extra to handout. When we built our house, he insisted I get a full basement saying you will be surprised at how much you will collect over the years. We did get the full basement and 18yrs later, Paul was right, we have collect more than I imagined, way more. Paul will be remembered and missed by all those lives he touched. God bless and we are sure he had something in his pocket for God when they met. You will be missed. "
