Nancy and family, I am so sorry for your loss of Paul. When I was hired at NIST it was Paul who took me under his wing and taught me so much about the site. I enjoyed working with Paul and he had my full respect and a great friendship with him. I have so many good memories of Paul and I am glad I got to work with him.

Our deepest condolences to your family.
