Oh my goodness. How to share a memory of Pauley!!! ???

He had a great sense of humor. Always met you with a smile. That smile was warm, kind and caring. He was so real! He had a way of making everyone feel as if they were the most important person in front of him. To me that’s the image of Christ he was to be. What a gift he was to all who knew him. He was and will continue to be one of many heartbeats of St. Edward’s.

Pauley we miss you! To Pauley’s family - we are praying for you and rejoicing that he’s in eternal paradise.

Love Linda and Jerry Robertson

Angela, Carla & Dennis,
My sympathies on the loss of your dad. Looking through your family photos brings to mind such fond memories of the many days I spent at your house after we moved to Johnson Lane. Your parents always welcomed me and I can't recall ever seeing your dad without a smile on his face. No doubt you will all miss him terribly.
May he be at peaceful rest with your mom.

We all have a precious few people who come into our lives and stand with us both through the good times and the hard times. Paul was one of those people for Dusty. Dusty feels a great sense of loss and feels a little lost right now. I am so sorry that this pandemic is keeping him isolated from your family during this time of grief. Please know that our thoughts and prayers are with all of you.

Paul was a real good friend. He made working at the railroad fun.
The railroad was not the same when he retired. I enjoyed every time that I played golf, went fishing, or went hunting with him. My sons and I always had a good time and I appreciate him including all of us in hunts.
