I know that you were so blessed to have him as your earthly father, and, thanks to our Lord, you will have eternity to spend together in JOY!
May God comfort you and your family during your time of sorrow...
Prayers for you,

I have so many fond memories of Mr. King. One of my favorites is when he and I worked on the church staff and I would always get to work early but NEVER earlier than him on the days he worked! He would make coffee when he got there and he and I shared countless morning cups when no one was there but us. He always had an encouraging word or a funny or interesting story to tell. He would laugh at things I would say and would say to me two things that I'll never forget. "Susie, you're a sight" and "you just won't do!"
It was a blessing to know Mr. Paul King. I loved him dearly. I'll see you in heaven, kind sir!

I worked with Paul for some time in Oak Ridge and a finer, hard working man would be hard to find. I’ve not seen or talked with Paul since the early 90’s, but would think of him from time to time. It was a blessing to know and work with for a short time.

Paul was a pleasant man who always had a smile on his face. He was a pleasure to know and care for. He will be dearly missed. Prayers to the family during this difficult time.
