My name is Cynthia Rowe and I worked with Paul for several years at Crouch Florist. I grew to love him very much. He was a talented, kind, compassionate, loving person. I don't think that Paul knew just how wonderful he was to just about everyone that he met. It is not often that you meet a person like him. His heart was so loving and gentle. The world has indeed suffered a loss, because he is not here anymore, and I know how much Paul loved his family. He spoke of all of you often.
I know what it is to lose someone in your life that is as special as Paul was to you and you are in my prayers. I ask for your comfort and for peace to abound in your lives.
Thank you so much for bringing such a wonderful person into the world. If you had not, many including myself, would not have been able to know and come to love dearly, such a man as Paul.

I was very sad to hear of Paul's passing. I know Bro Earl was waiting at the gates of heaven to welcome Paul home. I remember the days when I was doing the sound for the Holloway family singers at Briarcrest Baptist Church. I remember Paul playing Jesus in the Briarcrest presentation of "The day God died". May God grant the peace that passes all understanding to Jennie and his sisters as they prepare to say their final good bye to Paul. Chuck Boros
