My brother, dad and I have farmed a field ever since Paul bought the land. We aways enjoyed Paul stopping by the farm and his conversation about his early life. My favorite conversations were of Paul Helping his father farm with a one bottom plow and mule as well as his military stories. We will miss Paul and we are deeply sorry for your loss.

Sorry for your loss. He sure lived a long life. I will always remember him and the stories I have about him.
Take care,
Rick
