I was Paul's UPS driver at his barber shop for about 10 years. We also had something in common, both born in Coldwater. I want to pass my deepest sympathies to his family and friends. Paul was one of the absolutely nicest people I've ever met.

I am so sorry for your loss. May God’s promise bring comfort to your family. There will be “a new earth... and He will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore...I am making all things new.” Revelation 21:1-5
