Lorrie, I am so sorry to hear of Paul’s passing. My heart felt prayers are with you and your family.
May God bless and comfort your family in this time of lost.
Paul was a wonderful and admirable person. I thank him for serving his country and being the father he was to all of his children and the wonderful husband to Lorrie. He will be terribly missed by many. My prayers are with family in this time of sorrow.
We lost a true friend and a great Patriot. Paul was the quiet strength wherever he went. His service to our country and to His Lord are examples formal,to follow. I will miss him coming down from the balcony at Parkway. Lorne, our paraders are with you and the boys as you adjust to Paul’s passing. Call me if you ever need help around the house. I think Cherie will share.
May god’s peace be with you.
Paul was my neighbor for the past several years, in the true sense of the word. We often shared conversation on the way to/from the mailbox or working in the yards, discussing family or current events. If only the politicians would have listened to us, so many of today’s issues would have been resolved LOL.
Besides being wonderful neighbors, it was my pleasure to say Paul & Lorrie were essentially my ‘local’ ‘adoptive’ parents, as well as my friends. And it will be my honor to continue those roles with Lorrie, as we will both miss that wonderful, good man, Paul Bruner.
Pop pop I will miss you. I love you so much and I will always have you in my thoughts and my heart.
Our thoughts are with you and your family
All our love, prayers, and condolences!

To Lorrie and her Boys
So many ,miles were between us that kept us from knowing each other. Oh we knew each other many years the miles were still between us. maybe, just maybe we’ll bridge those miles. I do believe that we will meet again.
Sail on Sailor. Rest in Peace
