I do know that Paul cared for and loved Carol so much. I didn't know Carol only thru Paul in which he always spoke highly of her and would do anything for her.
Paul and I worked together for a few years at Walmart. We visited with each other on breaks. What a special and respected man. He was very well liked at Walmart. We called each other cousins!!
May God be with you Paul and family during this most difficult time.
Jesus loves you.

Love, Gail
