I will always remember Paul such a great guy. I don't think I ever seen him that he wasn't smiling. He was such a great guy I can remember all the times at Randy's he was always laughing and telling jokes. The one I remember the most is when clear lake was trying to control our property's and Paul was telling about what he had said to them. I will miss him dearly no our family will miss him dearly
