From the CaringBridge website tonight:
Paul moved on to heaven at 5:35 pm, he went in peace with lots of us by his side. We will follow with more details later, We are thinking a Tuesday Funeral.
Gods speed to Paul,
He will be deeply missed by all of us.
Reveal your presence,
and may the vision of your beauty be my death;
for the sickness of love
is not cured
except by your very presence and image.
The Spiritual Canticle, stanza 11 – St. John of the Cross
