  1. Aunt Barbara, Tina, and Family. I am in shock as I know each of you are as well. Why do the Good die young? Paul was a breath of fresh air. God Bless You all during this difficult time. We are all praying for each of you. My love to each of you during this time. Dad and all of our family is thinking and praying for each of you.Danny

  2. Dear Tina and Family,I am so sorry for ya'll's deep lost. I know he is in God's presence and looking down upon ya'll. I did not know Mr. Reggie but I know Tina and she is a great caring person and I know Tina's heart is broken in a thousand pieces because she loves him so very much. Tina, If I can ever do anything for you please call me. My prayers will be with you and those beautiful kids.

  3. I am deeply saddened at your loss and send my condolences to you and your family. I would also like to share with you a comforting scripture from the Bible at John 5:28,29 Do not marvel at this, because the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice [the voice of Jesus

  4. I had the pleasure of working with Paul for many years at the D.A.'s office. My thoughts and prayers are with his family.

  5. I really got to know Paul when I served as District Attorney of Calcasieu Parish. He applied for a job with the office and I hired him as an Assistant D.A. He was obviously very intelligent but what impressed me most about him was his compassion and genuine love for people. He had great respect for the rule of law and always used his position and authority to achieve a just result in every case he handled.Those of us who knew and loved him will miss him terribly. Those of us who share his great faith in God know that someday we will see him again in Paradise.

  6. I was honored to work with Paul for the past year and 8 months and had the highest respect for him as an attorney and person. He was exceptional and made my job far easier. The organization of his files was legendary. When he was not perfect about facts or such in court, I made a point of noting, Paul made a mistake, since the ocassions were so rare. Recently, I received from Paul a legal memorandum on an issue that had presented itself in regard to a prisoner. I had issued a ruling, but Paul knew I had erred. His memorandum was exceptional and was my first exposure to Paul's brillance as a writer and researcher. I did not hesitate to change my ruling. To say he will be missed is a gross understatement and his absence will greatly alter my life. Geralyn and I grieve for Tina and the children.Clayton and Geralyn Davis

  7. I will always remember the quiet patience and kindness of Paul Reggie during our time at law school. My thoughts and prayers go to everyone in his family.

  13. Mrs. Reggie, I'm so sorry for your loss. The world lost a good man who was also kind and never without a smile. I would see him in the halls and he never failed to say hello. Sometimes, I would scare Paul if he wasn't paying attention! I was a temp last year and again until June of this year. He was saying how his boy was finally sleeping in his own bed. I liked him a person cause he was the same everyday. God bless your family in this trying. Just wanted you to know what a wonderful man your husband was. I will keep you all in my prayers. Take care.

  40. To love a person, it is not about what they have achieved but what drove them to achieve it. Paul was an incredible person who always achieved by doing for others, whether it was to lend an ear, smile his fantastic smile, or to just say a kind word. I feel honored and blessed to have gone to Williston with him, and my prayers and wishes go out to his families. The world has lost a true friend and champion.

  41. To The Family As a Retired Law Enforcement I had the pleasure to meet and at times work with Paul. He was helpful and very pleasant to be around. He loved his job and it showed by the constant glowing smile that I remember him always having on his face. There is a saying that comes to mind and I feel it so my memory of Paul. He was a gentle man and a gentleman. Calcasieu Parish has lost a honest, carng, public servant.SincerelyRoy D. Miles
