Paul was such a great guy. He was always willing to help anyone. We always appreciated his help and expert background when we were instructing the Scouts on flag etiquette. And his computer skills helped a lot over at the church! We loved being your home teachers. We loved Paul, and we love you, Elaine.

Dearest Elaine and Family,

We are saddened to know Paul has ended his journey here on this earth but pray for his soul that is now in heaven. He has become an angel and shines bright as a star each night. Know we hold you in our thoughts and prayers. We're sending our love to each of you as you go through this loss of Paul as a husband, father and grandfather. May you fine peace in the memories you hold dear in your heart.

Our deepest sympathy,

Yolanda and Ken

We are going to miss our dear friend. Paul had a beautiful, well-lived life. When we think of Paul, we remember his ready smile and easy laughter, that positive attitude, tremendous love of family, dedication to his country, willingness to lend a hand, great fishing stories, and his truly good heart. For every church conference, he would devote his time and talents to ensure we had a great broadcast. For every Bagdad 4th of July, he would march in the parade, proudly carrying the United States flag. Paul will be missed but never forgotten. May the sweetness he brought to the lives of us all bring us comfort. To his beloved wife, Elaine, and to the rest of his family, we pray you find peace and know that you will see him again. God bless and keep you.
