My heart goes out to the Barrentine Family for their loss of a truly great husband, father, and man. I will always remember Paul for his sense of humor and his easygoing manner. He was a gracious host when I was a guest in his home and he was a wonderful boss when I worked for him. His great love of his family and his great pride in his work were obvious every time that I had the privilege to see him.
