Jim and Family, I am so very sorry for your loss. Paul was a very good man who dedicated his life to God. I fondly remember our days as alter boys at St. Joseph's and all the church social events. It seems like yesterday, yet so long ago. May God hold him very close.

Jesus bless him in heaven, especially with his special cross necklace he doesn't necessarily need now to protect him in heaven. If he shared with you his story of how his cross caught a bullet once or something dangerous that the cross protected him from. I definitely will miss the sweet loving/ interesting of sorts stories/ part of him!...jenny Pratt long
