Paul 's family and mine were long time neighbors. Paul was younger than me so I had the privilege of watching him grow into a hard-working man. Paul could light up the whole room with his radiant smile. Be at peace Paul and rest easy on that mountain.

Paul was always a great friend since we were kids. My heart breaks for his wife and kids. I know he will always be looking out for them because that's who he was all his life. He will always be my friend until we meet up again.
