As a colleague of Paul's at the IU law school in Indianapolis, I send sincere condolences to his family and other friends. Paul was a kind, gentle person with a keen sense of comradeship. He served the law school well as professor and Vice Dean (a position I suspect he hated but undertook for the good of the school). Everyone trusted, respected, and liked him. We've missed him since his retirement and now will miss him even more.

Heartfelt Sympathy to you Chris and family. I enjoyed seeing and talking to Paul and will miss him immensely. The fact that he always asked how our daughter Rachel was doing and concerned for her employment was so very kind . Please know we are praying for your strength during this difficult time.
