I will always remember Paul for being such a gentleman. On his first day at UPS I went over and introduced myself and share a little about UPS. It seem to put him at ease. About 20 years later he explained how much that meant to him. I had no idea until he shared it with me. A fine individual, one of my best drivers.

May the peace of God keep each of you.
Love Tina
