Mrs. Banik, Amy, Melissa and family I express my deepest condolences on the loss of dear Paul. I was saddened to learned it. He has left behind wonderful memories of his caring nature. He was a magnificent administrator. A friend who cared very much in every way for his staff and students. He was loved by each one he touched with the beauty of his soul. For sure it was fun to be in his company. In the Asbury Park School System one of the best.
