    Paul, you most definitely will be missed. You were more than just a coworker, you were a friend. Your early departure from this life has left a huge void with the team at WHPDA. Rest easy buddy.

    Paul I can’t believe you’re gone so soon. Seems like just yesterday we were shooting the breeze about GoT and how Manny ruins all the work trucks with food items. I’ll never forget you Paul, we had some fun times at WHPDA! Rest Easy Brotha!

    Paul- I never got the pleasure of meeting you but feel like I knew you through all the stories Crystal has shared. It was clear that you are the love of Crystal’s life and were a loving, exceptional husband. You have left too early but I promise you that I will watch over Crystal until you meet again.

    My sincerest condolences to Crystal & the Parrillo family. While I never had the pleasure of meeting Paul, it is evident from these posts that he was a wonderful man & friend to so many. May the times spent with Paul be remembered fondly by the people who cared so deeply for him.
