I will always remember Uncle Paul’s wit and affection. He was there with help when needed and with Aunt Bev got me through the Florida crisis with my mother. He was an amazing man and had an amazing family that was equally supportive to him when he needed it.

It was reassuring to know that he was still in this world and equally reassuring to know he is with his mother and brother and sisters now.

I send all my love and wish I could be with you physically. I am there in spirit.

I love you all.

My deepest sympathy goes out to Beverly and all the family. Paul was my late father’s first insurance agent many years ago. I will always remember his many visits with my parents. Now they are all together. Again, my deepest wishes to all of the Raskin family.

Our deepest sympathy to the Raskin family, especially Ron who is my friend. Although I only met Paul once, I had several conversations with him that always made me feel warm and at ease. I will remember him as a warm and caring individual. His spirit lives on with us all from above. God bless. Steve, Terri, Seth and Nick Dixon

Please accept my deepest condolences on the loss of your husband, father, grandfather and great grand father. In my one meeting with him, it was apparent what a gentle, loving and humourous man he was – a true patriarch. I am so sorry he didn’t live to see Savannah but I know you will share your stories of him with her. My thoughts are with Beverly particularly at this time.
