Paul, I will remember your smile. I will miss our Summer conversations, our morning waves and your sense of humor. You were kind to my family and I. Mike will miss competing with you for the best grass on the street. I look out my window and still see you. I pray you are with your dear wife you enjoyed talking about. I will remember you dear neighbor, although I only knew you a few years, you will be in my memories and prayers. Our condolences to your family.

Please accept my sincere condolences to Paul’s family and friends. I know this can be a difficult time of sorrow, but look to God for comfort and strength. He will heal your broken heart. He hates death, even calling death the enemy, He will soon end death forever. What a wonderful hope for our future.
