Not sure what to say?

Sorry to hear of Paul's passing. I met Paul on a few occasions and visited with him on his bus after concerts. His wife was a great-niece of my stepmother, Mary Nell Mabry Sullivan. Paul would speak of his wife and sons with great love and pride and share pictures of them. The world has lost a great man.

My husband and I new Paul for many years and were honored to know this good man. Condolences and sympathy to his family and friends. Darwin and Georgi Garvin

Mr Paul had to have a interesting life preforming with Mr Nelson. I know he had some stories to tell. The family probably heard a lot of the them which makes for great memories. The f amily has my symphaty.

Thanks for all the good music! Rest in Peace.
