Paul and I worked together at Louisiana Healthcare Connections in the IT Dept. Paul always worked so hard. Only had one speed but he always got the work done. His laugh was unmistakable. Found humor in so much. Things wont be the same there without him. I send deepest condolences to the family.

So sorry for your loss. We will certainly miss him here at the office. He was such a fun-loving guy, and we could always count on him to make us laugh. Will keep all of your family in prayer.

Mr. Paul’s fun loving spirit and jokes will truly be missed around the office. Who’s going to hand deliver us our favorite “Cafe Special” coffee? Who’s going to fix our computers? Another piece to our work puzzle gone!! Fervently praying for his wife and family for this unexpected loss.
