Uncle Paul....I only had the pleasure of knowing you for a little under 2 years, but in that short time you made me feel like family. Whenever I go to Heather's house I will miss seeing your 'always' smiling face & miss getting your 'always' welcoming hug! I will forever cherish you taking some of the precious time you had left to meet me at Heather's house and allow me to see you & spend 1 more evening with you:) You will be forever missed & loved by all who were fortunate enough to have known you. Rest Peacefully....until we see each other again!
