Diane, I am so very sorry for your loss. You and your family are in my prayers.
Diane: My heartfelt sympathy to you and your family. I am fairly new to LAC, but was aware of Paul’s important role in the group in his leadership role. May God’s comfort and peace surround you at this sad time.
I sang with Paul and served with him on the board of Lutheran A Cappella Choir of Milwaukee. What a kind gentleman and giving person. I will always wear in his loving memory the red bowtie and pocket handkerchief he gave us men for a Christmas concert a few years ago. It is comforting to imagine his tenor voice in the choir of angels, forever singing praise to God.
Diane, My sincere condolences to you and your family. I did not know Paul well but I did know him to be a kind, loyal gentleman. Not only will you and the family miss him the whole music community with which he participated/
I have fond memories of Berkley choir reunions which Paul helped organize. He always made time to visit with me and had memories to share graduating with my late brother Earl(Buz). My deepest condolences to his family.
