    Paul was a wonderful person, always excited when he was able to instill hope in clients he worked with. He helped so many clients move forward, achieve goals they had no idea were a possibility. He was a great coworker, always had a positive attitude, and was willing to help staff as well our clients. I will miss Paul. I know staff members and many clients are missing him as well. I spoke with some of the clients he had been working with recently. Paul helped them to recognize they could have hope for today as well as for the future. He was able to help them view life in a positive light. As a result, they explained they were grateful for what he helped them accomplish, , and although saddened about his passing, they were able to maintain a positive attitude. Paul introduced several clients to available community resources; programs which helped them begin a better life. They shared their motivation to follow through and complete the programs they have been working on out of respect for Paul. Thank you Paul for being such a positive light in many lives. You will be missed!
