Deb Sponagle -Taylor
Yvonne, Maria,Julie ,Joanne and all of Paul’s family and friend’s,
This news came as a shock, my heart goes out to you all at this very hard time. I had the privilege of growing up with Paul ,kid’s from the same neighborhood. And was blessed to have shared a beer with him just last Summer. A chance meeting I will never forget. We laughed and talked like we hadn’t in so many years because of life sending us in different directions. Paul was a gem, quick to laugh,I see that smile as I write.
I prey in time with help and strength from family and friend’s that your hearts will seal in the joy that this wonderful Person gave you and that a smile may again be on your faces when you remember the great years you had together. Easy to say now, but with help from love ones you again will feel his presence because of your Love.
God Bless and keep you strong,
Yvonne and Family.
Sorry to hear of Pauls passing and praying that the God of Comfort will give you each a peace that passes all understanding, a peace that only He can give, as you walk through these difficult days and the days ahead.
Betty, Yvonne, Joanne and families: Please accept my deepest sympathies in the loss of your son, husband, father and brother and may he be at peace now. Susan

Yvonne and Family…Our thoughts are with you. Paul and I were “Pre-Fab” kids, and shared many memories of growing up in the same neighbourhood. Whenever we spoke, we shared gems of wisdom, collected from our life’s experiences. I will miss those conversations very much
We are so sorry to hear about Paul. Our sincere condolences to Betty, Yvonne and families. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
Dear Yvonne and family,
I was so very sorry to hear this news. The last time I saw Paul was at Privateer Days, as we stood in front of the stage, in the big tent. As always when we did run into one another, Paul talked about ‘back in the days’ and when i decided to set up this Still Crazy Reunion of old bands and old friends, it was with people like Paul in mind. He would have loved this get together and it saddens me deeply that of all people, he won’t be there. Everyone is shocked and we will pay tribute to him. Wishing you strength and peace. All the best, Kathryn Killam
