Mom (Shirley) knew Mr. Paul as a classmate; I just knew he made THE BEST cold cut subs in Cambridge - whether it was at 'The Loft' or 'Sub City'. He made an impact with all of us as we grew up and frequented his businesses. May you find comfort in your fond memories.

My condolences to the family of an old MSP Academy classmate. It has been a very long time and our numbers are rapidly declining. Les Booker MSP Retired

Please accept my sympathy at this most difficult time. May reflecting and mediating on Jesus' words that 'he is the resurrection and the life' and that life can be restored to your dear loved ones bring you great comfort (John 11: 25) Yes, the resurrection is a real hope, which helps us to focus not on Paul's death but on life everlasting in Paradise. God becomes our "arm" of strength and our salvation at this time of distress (Isaiah 33:2). May these words bring you peace.

Karen, I am sad to hear Paul passed away. It seems like yesterday we were all at The Loft Sub Shop. He was a great boss. He taught me so much working for him. I know he will be missed by many... Kendra
