Paul will be greatly missed by us all. I will miss my special time with him. He like to go out and eat chicken and then when he was able we would go and put flowers at the cemetery, and just stroll around to see who he knew. Paul was a very special person to us all. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all in the coming days.

Thoughts and prayers are with you at this time. I was glad I met Paul but I am sad for only knowing him for such a short period of time. He was fortunate to have such a caring family.
