Paul was such an honorable Christian man. On a personal level, he made regular visits to my grandmother, Loraine Virginia Beard in her later years. He would come and visit, pray with her, and sometime bring her some fruit or vegetables. They always had a grand time and my Grandma really appreciated his visits. In my younger years, I always looked forward to seeing your growing family at church. Precious memories of you all at Oak & Conyer and then Walnut & Demaree. May God comfort you and bring you peace. Much love to you.
