We will all miss Paul. He was a good man. He believed and defended the doctrine of prior appropraition. He was very instrumental as few knew, on helping out in the Lower Rio Grande Adjudicagtion. My heart goes out to those who loved him he will surely be remembered by many.

Now more than ever, the USA needs more attack dogs like Bloom to go after those criminals who have bled our country dry. Bloom will have a hard time trying to locate Reagan behind those pearly gates as I suspect Ronnie went on to warmer climes.

How sad to lose such a man of integrity, tactical brilliance, and dedication to our country. Capable of large visions and the ability to couple these visions with action, Paul Bloom will be much missed by America, by the people of New Mexico he served, and by all those who, like me, had the opportunity to know him. My deep condolences to his family.

Paul's funeral was very touching. From all descriptions, he was a talented public servant and advocate. I concur with those who say we need more like him. Condolences to his wife Marge, and the rest of his family.
