I have great memories of Paul. He was a wonderful person. He was our DHIA milk tester during the time my family farmed near Willard (over 50 years ago). He always ate breakfast with us after the morning milking and did all the paperwork in our kitchen. Great memories. My condolences to Paul's family. I wish them the very best in this tough time.
