Uncle Paul was such a sweet and loving man. Although it has been many years since l last saw him, I will never forget his smiling face. I have fond memories of him when I lived with the family when I was young, and he always treated me as if I was a part of the family. Sharon, Paulette and Robin, I send my sincere sympathy and pray God will give you comfort.

Mr. Paul was a JOY to everyone who knew him. Best pound cakes around. I was blessed to have him as a neighbor. He use to stand in the door waiting for me to bring him his paper. Lifting all of you up in prayer. He loved his girls.
