Dear Wanona, somehow I missed the news of Paul's death until I visited with my sister and she gave me the
news. Paul was such a great, friendly guy with such a positive demeanor! It was fun having him in the Weber State instrumental groups! Take care and love to you and your family!

We miss Paul at the PT clinic. I am sad to not have my weekly sessions with him. I loved when Paul would put on the boxing gloves and give me all he could. He was a hard worker and I am so grateful that I was able to get to know him. He had a fun personality and liked to give advice and tease. Much love to Wanona and the Greer family.

Wanona, Teresa, Sharon, and Debbie -- I just heard about Paul's death a few minutes ago. I'm sorry we lost him so soon. My condolences and love to you all.

I am so sorry to hear of the loss of coworker that became my beloved friend. I always called him Mr. Paul because Mr. Greer was too formal and Paul wasnt formal enough for the energy and the conviction he had when he spoke. He was knowledgeable in his work and spoke about it with passion at times. I looked up to him so much! He was a leading influence for me in becoming a better employee and a better person. I always valued his opinion and had constructive conversations; he also goofed around with me. It took me a while before I could crack his serious work-shell but when I cracked it, I got a goldmine of silliness and laugher. I went to swing shift but our paths would still cross almost daily. I sat on the opposite side of the building and I would see him walking to the printer and big wave! Sometimes I would do a little jig after and throw a peace sign. He would big wave back and I could see him smiling! That smile, sigh. Mr. Paul was one of the good ones. Its a terrible loss but heaven gained a good one! I will continue to big wave at you from down here and will do a little jig for fun. I will wave at you when I see ya at the pearly white gates; throw in a good word for me with the big guy. I will miss you and your bright light! Much love to his family and friends.

Wynonna, my sympathies for you and your family. I heard Paul was not doing well. Although we are unable to pay tribute in person because of these awful times, our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. I worked with Paul for many years and have many fond memories of our work family.

Dear Sister Greer, Elder Carter and myself feel truly blessed to have known your sweet husband. Every time we came into your home we felt a spirit of goodness and testimony. We appreciated his strong testimony and the spiritual witness he shared each Fast and Testimony Sunday. We know the Savior's Atonement will bring you strength and comfort at this time. Our prayers are with you and your family. Love, Elder and Sister Carter

I'm so sorry wanona. I'll never forget Paul's story about one of his phone calls. He had a gentleman who could not pass disclosure. When he asked for his birthday he turned the phone over to someone else. When that gentleman gave his name Paul told him that he couldn't be that person because he was just talking to him. Best comeback ever. He will be greatly missed.
