My dear friend, I am so sad to hear of your sudden passing. You have left a deep hole in my heart and I will miss you terribly. I always enjoyed our joyful teasing about your spiffy bow-ties and was pleased you wore the black and white paisley bow-tie I gave you. You were such a proud man and insisted that any written materials associated with you would need extra editing to ensure the grammar was to your satisfaction. I learned a lot about dangling participles--or so I hope as I wasn't always the best pupil remembering your instructions. I will miss our lively discussions as you passionately advocated for senior adults--sometimes using curse words to make your point. Paul, my dear friend, you not only made my world a better place, but you improved the lives of every senior adult in Dane County. Your friendship meant the world to me.

--Cheryl Batterman, Area Agency on Aging Manager of Dane County
