During the past year Paul became a part of our family as he sat and ate lunch and dinner with my mom every day at Eastgate. At least once a week I ate a meal with my mom and Paul as did both my daughters when time aloud them. He and I clicked immediately with our stories of growing up in small towns. We made each other and everyone else at the table laugh. It didn't take long for all of us to love him. He will be truly missed, but always remembered. Susan, Kate and Jessica Pearce and of course my mom Martha Hunter.
