    My condolences to Paul's family. I was fortunate enough to work with Paul for many years. He was a very hard worker, a kind human being, and a class act all the way around. He will be greatly missed!

    I just heard of Paul's passing, which came as a very sad surprise to all of us at MI, since we had been seeing him daily just a couple of weeks ago. Having worked with Paul for close to twenty years at MI, I will certainly miss his smiling presence and our conversations during breaks or when working together. Please accept my heartfelt condolences and sympathies, Donna, in these difficult moments. We are all deeply saddened by the news, and we will all have you and your family in our prayers and thoughts. With best wishes, Javier Mory
