Not sure what to say?

Paul was a dear and loyal friend for forty years. I'm so very sorry I didn't find out about his death and memorial service until the service was over. We shared many experiences not only at work but many other places. Paul was a fun person to be around. My deepest condolences to Sue and Sherry and Pam. We will always miss him.

I was sad to leave Double Oak three years ago, fearing I would never have the wonderful people such as were my dear neighbors again. Then Paul and Sue Ann moved!

No doubt Paul is writing poetry about heaven now!!!RIP, dear friend.

I was married to this unique man for 55 years and I'm sad there won't be any more years. I miss him. Rest well, Paul, with my love, Sue Ann
