\my deepest condolences to the Decker family. Rip

Paul was my friend since high school and I was quite shocked and saddened to hear of his passing. He lived in Calgary for a few years, prior to his recent move back to Toronto. During that time, we played many games of golf and after the rounds, told countless lies over a dark rum and coke. I am sure many of Paul’s fraternity brothers will have a few stories to reminisce about, some of which may be true. Regrettably, I am unable to attend the service. He will be missed.
