Message from the Board

The Cunningham family would like to express our heartfelt gratitude and deepest appreciation to the Texas City Attorneys Association. Your kind donation of the bench honoring Paul’s years of service as city attorney to South Padre Island is a beautiful tribute to him and to the city. The bench was placed in a lovely location at the end of Pampano Street overlooking the bay, and serves as a permanent reminder of his love for his profession and for his city.
Thank you for your efforts in coordinating and facilitating this special memorial to our loved one. It means the world to us.
