My Fondest Memories of Uncle Paul was during the holidays. He really enjoyed playing the piano and singing. I would often mention to people how talented my uncle was turning a modest one bedroom house into an amazing home for his family. He was so very talented. I will miss you Uncle Paul, may you rest easy in the presence of our loving Lord...

I am a member of Highland Park Baptist Church and that's where I met Paul. I had the privilege of hearing him sing with the choir in that wonderful voice of his. I'm sure he's singing with the saints in heaven now. He is missed by all of his friends at church.

I was his pastor for many years. And I just wanted to you to know that he was the kindest person I knew. And he loved his dear daughter. I knew that because he often spoke of her. And he was saved by His grace and I, and anyone that is saved, will see him again.

May God bless his family.

That image is one that comes to me when I think of your dad Laura. He really enjoyed playing. I can see him working around the house too. Slightly rainy day, cloudy, him laying bricks, mortar mixed in the wheelbarrow and cigar in his mouth. Such a project re-doing the house by himself. Working on the Vegamatic, seemed like always. The food at your Mom & Dad's house was awesome, I remember distinctly the shopping day for groceries as a weekly ritual. Getting the coupons and then off to the stores, offloading everything in the kitchen.

I appreciate everything he did for me and taught me. When I think back at the time I lived there I realize that there was so much that I learned and has influenced me. I wish I had visited more. Wish that I had thanked him better.

Laura, sending prayers your way to help you with your loss and grief at losing your dad. He was a kind man. I always enjoyed my weekly milk and cookie with him! He was easy to talk with and proud of you!
God bless.

We miss Paul and pray for the Lord's comfort for each one who is also grieving his loss. We always loved to spend time with him and have him play the piano for us. He was a dear brother. We miss him and he will be greatly missed in the days ahead.

I have such fond memories of Paul playing the piano while the extended family sang Christmas songs at Christmas parties. Lots of memories of the house and property and pruning the old apple tree.
Blessings to the whole family and grateful that Paul is resting at peace with Elizabeth again.
