Put it down to save your life

Remembering Paul

Today, we write with heavy hearts as we remember our former colleague and the founding writer of this blog, Paul Caret. Paul died earlier this week at the young age of 53. He suffered yet exhibited tremendous grace in his three-year battle with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, or ALS, often known as Lou Gehrig's Disease.

We were grateful to have called him a colleague for seven years here at MEMIC. He worked as a safety management specialist in the construction field. He was knowledgeable, sensible, kind and fun. He cared deeply about helping make workplaces safer.

He took on this blog when he was no longer able to work in the field on customer jobsites. He brought great enthusiasm and care to the effort. And, he delighted when he started to get feedback from far-flung places.

We miss Paul and we send our best thoughts to his family.

Thank you so much for remembering Paul in your blog.

You are so right in your description of his "tremendous grace". I spent many hours with him over the past three years and never once heard him complain about his condition.

I am proud to have been associated with MEMIC and to see how the company supported him right up to the end. I was also impressed with the number of MEMIC employees who attended his Funeral Mass on Friday September 24th.
