Paul was an honorable man, much respected and always pleasant to be around. He was a wonderful brother in law, loved by both family and friends. May God's Holy Spirit abide with you, Millie, and Trey, giving you comfort in this time of separation. We love you. Eleanor and Libby

Im so sorry for your loss. Praying you find comfort from the God of all comfort (2 Corinthians 1:3,4 & Psalms 83:18). Jesus prayed for Gods Kingdom to come because He knew it would be able to solve all mankinds problems even death (Revelation 21:4,5).

Millie, so sorry to hear about Paul. Our thoughts and prayers are with you during all this. We will be leaving
tomorrow and not be here for the service but our thoughts will be with you and your family.
