Chris Gaynor wrote this the day after Paul's death:



The Beauty of a life

lived with Beauty

is in the Traces created


in doing so

through Shadows cast-upon us

in its Wake

a Resounding

reaches us

all the more clearly


with a Music

we now


to Hear

Chris, like Paul grew up in Cupertino.

Both were only sons of Lockheed engineers.

Both became guitarists.
