Aunt Mildred and family,
Can't express the heartache that the loss of Uncle Paul has brought. Please know that you are in our thoughts and prayers as always. You know he is at rest and no longer fighting the battles he so courageously for so long. Your love and devotion and care for him is so greatfully appreciated by all of us who love him. Please know our love stays with each of you as long as we live. Take care of each other. Remember he lives as we have our memories of him. I was honored to be a neice. Love to all. Joann & Randy

The Watch (U.S. Navy)
For twenty years,
This sailor has stood the watch
While some of us were in our bunks at night,
This sailor stood the watch

While some of us were in school learning our trade,
This shipmate stood the watch

Yes...even before some of us were born into this world,
This shipmate stood the watch

In those years when the storm clouds of war were seen
brewing on the horizon of history,
This shipmate stood the watch

Many times he would cast an eye ashore and see his family standing there,
Needing his guidance and help,
Needing that hand to hold during those hard times,
But he still stood the watch

He stood the watch for twenty years,
He stood the watch so that we, our families,
And our fellow countrymen could sleep soundly in safety,
Each and every night,
Knowing that a sailor stood the watch

Today we are here to say:
"Shipmate...the watch stands relieved.
Relieved by those YOU have trained, guided, and lead
Shipmate you stand relieved...we have the watch!"

Dad, you have stood your watch and now it is our time to stand the watch. We love you. Steve & Yvette
