I remember Paul as a friendly and smiling person among those who were not. My prayers are with him and his family as they face the limitations of life on earth that God has given to each of us. Only God knows why the best among us are taken before the lesser of us. As one of those lessers, I am sorry that it is not me instead.

I have known Paul Kaplan since we were four years old at Wise Temple, knew his brother Leonard, who died tragically of cancer while still a teenager, and his father Ben, who was my bookkeeper when I owned a bar back in 1976.  Paul was always a very gentle guy, tremendously studious, and extremely caring about his family and faith.  My warmest condolences to his wife and family, and may he rest in peace.

My Sincere Condolences to Paul's family. I was fortunate to sit down with Paul at the 50th and catch up on the years gone by. I feel grateful to have reconnected at that time. Yes, way too soon. I put him on a prayer list for the deceased. May he be in everlasting Peace.

To the family of Paul Kaplan. I sit here remembering the moments Paul and I were in each others company. It is easy for me to reflect the warmth of his smile and his greeting when we stopped to acknowledge each other. I  recall the friendly face and exchange we had on several ocassions over years in the halls of Woodward. Paul was a mellowed unassuming spirit without a harmful bone in his entire body, He had a shyness in his personality. I regret I was not able to express those memories to him..Jeffrey Robinson
