Mr. Paul,
I want to thank you for all you have taught me, in the shop teaching me how to cut out oasis, how to construct structally sound heavy duty stands, showing us all how to meticulously breakdown boxes. That’s just shop talk though, I want to thank you for showing me what a genuinely humble and beautiful human being you were.
You lived so simply, yet we’re not simple at all, You had a larger than life personality that brought smiles to everyone who was lucky enough to cross paths with you. I will never forget asking you if you were ok , Your answer was always Aw Yeah. No matter how much pain you may have endured you always stayed positive and saw the best in every situation. I just want to say thank you for being such an angelic soul to so many of us.
You will be greatly missed,
Love Always,
Your Friend
Misty
