    I’m so sorry to read of Paul’s death in the Ludington Daily News. I was in the same class that graduated from Ludington High School in 1962. I took Journalism classes from his father but never was in the same group at school. Please know I remember him as a kind caring classmate and I hope on his part, friend. My husband also served in Vietnam so I know he went through a much. Please convey our sympathies to the entire family. I wish i had spoken to him at the 50th reunion. I’ll think of all of you and keep you in my prayers.
