I was sorry to learn today of Paul's passing. I enjoyed attending Kings of Swing concerts with him and other Arrowhead residents. It was fun to hear him talk about saving for his dancin' shoes. Together we admired the roses outside of the Kent Senior Citizen complex. He knew I had worked in the floral industry and volunteered to gather particular cuttings for me from the woods.
Paul was a talker, an entertainer. I enjoyed listening to his many stories.
Paul worked hard at fighting his cancer, determined to exercise and eat the right food.
One thing that stands out in my mind is that Paul appreciated where he was at. A clean, safe place to live made Paul's last years happy and content years. With his meetings and help with various events at Arrowhead he tried to encourage others and share what he had attained.
Elaine Quinn deserves recognition for helping Paul.
My condolences to those at Arrowhead who got to know Paul and appreciate his kind heart.
