Dear Paul ,
I address this note as I feel you will be able to read it , Gone from this world but living on . I met Paul when he was working in my office ,ESDA, at the Met Museum . You couldn’t pass his desk without stopping and chatting with him . The amazing glowing smile , the gentle voice and the overall energy , the impeccable dress code . These qualities are rare in a person but with Paul all that came together without effort and set the mood of the day . I had the pleasure of hearing him play , he made me appreciate classical piano music all the more . I light a candle for you most nights and talk with you . I plan to plant a tree which is my tradition but I want it to be near me to watch it grow . I miss you . I m proud to have known you bud
With love and remembrance,
Eric P.

Paul -It was such an honor to have known you for so many years. You were such an extraordinary talent, a real gentleman and a true friend. Every time I would see you at the Mu Phi Epsilon concerts I enjoyed our talks and appreciated all the support you gave. You will be missed and thought of with smiles and love.

Paul and I became friends during our student days at Juilliard and I was so happy to have reconnected with him a few years ago in NYC. He was such a vibrant personality, wonderful pianist, imaginative artist and tremendous chef. Honest and forthright but also kind. I had not fully understood the profound influence and importance of our friendship until I heard the news that he had passed. My condolences and sincere sympathy to Monica and the rest of Paul's family. May he rest in eternal peace as he remains in our hearts.
