We'll miss you Paul

Our friend Paul Berg died at home at 1am this morning. We were really sad to hear the news, but at the same time happy for Paul. Happy to know He left ready to go. Ready to go on without cancer. I've never really known Paul without cancer. I remember the first time I met Paul. It was around Christmas. I remember because it was Heart2Home's very 1st makeover and Paul was there and He had literally just had surgery to remove a tumor from his jaw. He couldn't talk but still managed to make us laugh with his awesome humor. My favorite memory of Him was when I was still cutting his hair. He had had a couple of chemo treatments and was about to lose his hair. And I remember us all laughing when I asked him what he wanted with his haircut and he joked for me to not take too much off cuz he wanted to grow it out. That's how Paul was. He had a great sense of humor. That's how I will remember Paul. Laughing at cancer.

So sorry for the loss of your friend. We don't know him personally but from what we've heard, he was pretty amazing. May all that knew him feel comfort and peace at this time.

Crystal,
What a nice tribute. I met him at the black tie dinner. He seemed like a wonderful person. As difficult as his passing is...it also brings relief. At least Tiffany and the family had some good memories down to the very end.
