Our lives have forever changed from knowing Paul!
Paul and Mark had a special friendship...the good, the bad and the crazy. One of our fondest shared memories is Paul & Marks 50th street birthday party!
We shared many meals together and enjoyed all of them.
I will miss our grocery trips, Lowe’s trips and the occasional lunch.
Paul, you are and will always be missed by us.
Rest in peace dear friend!!
