  4. although you don’t know me, I am thinking that with all the work that is being done at the Oswego Lighthouse, your loved one will be forever remembered as being stationed there when the plaques and histories are displayed after the renovations (that need completion!).
    So there is an immortality that many of us would envy.

  5. My condolence to Paul’s family. Paul and I worked at Alcan in the Maintenance Engineering Department. Working side by side,I was able to learn a bit of knowledge from him daily. The information and expertise he shared was very beneficial in my career.My heartfelt prayers go out to his family.

  6. I WAS SO SADDEN TO HEAR ABOUT PAUL. MY THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS ARE SENT TO ELAINE ,DEBBIE, AND PAUL, IFEEL TERRIBLE THAT I DIDN’T GET TO PAY MY LAST RESPECTS.BLESS YOU ALL.
