I met Paul when I first moved to Bridgto in 2006. When I first went to Dunkin Donuts in Bridgton, Maine, we bonded almost instantly and we became good friends. After all my medical problems we would use Messenger to talk to each other at all times of the night he in Maine and me in Florida. My last time to see him was in August 2019 at Beth's for lunch. A real friend we always talked about everything. What a great friend. I will miss him very much and my heart is broken just as everyone in his family must feel the same. I will always remember him and I send love to all of you in his family. Alan Barton
