Troy JoAnn Tim Tammy and Todd, I am thinking of you and praying for you all in your time of loss. I loved your dad. He was slow to anger, kind, and a sweet man. I always felt welcome in your house to stay nights with Troy. Thanks to JoAnn and Paul for that. I am always thankful of my time with your family. God Bless Paul as his father welcomes his son home pain free.

Aunt JoAnn and family - I send my deepest heartfelt sympathy and prayers to each of you. Uncle Paul will be greatly missed. His loving and kind way and relaxed conversations were always so welcoming when we would come to visit from Michigan. May God's angels bless you in this difficult time with strength, peace and comfort as you celebrate his life and may you be blessed with fond memories to help you through this time of transition and may God's light and love sustain you. God Bless!
