Paul and Jo were our greatest neighbors on Stages Island at Lobdell Lake for more than thirty years.

The Hamm’s made us part of their family.

The Rilett’s are honored to have known him.

With much love,
Kent, Liz, Sean and Victoria Rilett

I remember going sledding when I was younger, our family(the Czach's) hung out with Paul and his family and Paul said, don't worry we won't fall, but we fell all the way down the hill and laughed. Great times.
