Ali and family, so sorry to hear of your father's death. I pray that God gives you the peace and comfort that you all need at this time. Thinking of you and praying for all of you.
Our prayers are with you all. May God bless and comfort you.
Jane, Brandon, Allison and the entire BTE family. Paul will be greatly missed by all as he was always a joy to talk to and to do business with. Pray to God in these difficult times and he will give you peace.
My heart goes out to the Barrentine Family for their loss of a truly great husband, father, and man. I will always remember Paul for his sense of humor and his easygoing manner. He was a gracious host when I was a guest in his home and he was a wonderful boss when I worked for him. His great love of his family and his great pride in his work were obvious every time that I had the privilege to see him.
