To the Edwards Family,
Please accept my deepest sympathy for the loss of Paul. I had the privilege of knowing Paul and Eddie when the family moved to North 41 st street in Fort Smith many years ago. I remember Paul as being a young musician who had talent and ambition. Each of you are in my thoughts and prayers during this time of sorrow. Paul will be missed by many.

I first met Paul when he went to work for Arkansas Rehabilitation Services in Fayetteville a few years back. Paul was a very likeable person and easy to talk to. He was an asset to our office and actually was able to see him again not so long ago. Paul was kind and gentle....a good person. I will remember his smile and am glad I knew him. My thoughts and prayers for his family.
