I was a caregiver for Paul Baum at Mennonite home! He was a part of our family for a year and he was a joy to be around! He would always keep us girls laughing by acting silly or dancing! He wasn't afraid to talk to you about his life and he wasn't afraid to put a smile on your face! If you were having a bad day just being around him made you cheer up! He was a complete gentleman and was always very kind! I am so saddened by his passing because he was a light in my life! I enjoyed caring for him and I am so blessed that I got to know this man! He was like a grandfather to me and his memory will always live on in my heart!

I was saddened to learn of Paul's passing. I grew up as a neighbor of the Baum family and remember Paul as a kind and caring man. The whole Baum family were such good people. I am sending love, prayers and many healing thoughts to Pat and the entire family.

Deb, I am sorry to hear of the passing of your Dad. My thoughts and prayers go to you during this difficult time.

I have thought of you many times over the years and always wondered where you ended up in this life. I see you live in Cape May, NJ. I hope today finds you well and happy. Seeing your Dad's picture in the paper reminded me of all the good times we had while living on Pine Street. What great memories!

I will look you up on FB.

Prayers and hugs to you!
