Dustin,
I have been out of town this week and didn't hear of your Dad's passing until I got to work this morning. I am so saddened. My boys will be sad too when I return home from work tonight and tell them that "nice guy" that would take the time to stop and joke or cheer them as they played his WII, has gone to heaven. No matter how busy he was, he would always stop and talk and make my boys feel noticed. Please give your Mom a hug for me and know that your family is in my thoughts and prayers.

"Blessed indeed is the man who hears many gentle voices call him father."
Paul was my father for seven years through marriage. He was a soft spoken man who made me feel at ease whenever I was around him. He was always willing to help me with my car or with home repairs and never expected anything in return.
I will never forget the time spent with him fishing, our trip to Maui and watching football in his home, that of course only if NASCAR wasn't on at the same time. He loved his racing!
Paul is one of a few men who has had a positive impact in my life. You are a great grandfather and you took my son into your home as one of your own. For that alone I am eternally grateful!
My condolences to Gail, Dustin, Colton and especially Lynsie. I wish you comfort knowing your father is in Heaven fishing with his dad once again.

What an amazing brother and friend. I'm so sorry that we had to say goodbye so soon, but we know that you are fishing with Dad and Dany and all your other friends and loved ones. Love you so very much. Merlyn and family.

I have more memories then there is space to type but one of my favorite memories is the time we held Merlyn down and cut her finger nails - she was not a happy camper. You were the best brother a girl could as for. You looked out for Merlyn and I when we were growing up making sure the guys treated us with respect and I would say helping us stay out of trouble but if my memory is correct you were the source of the trouble - nothing bad just fun. Your memory will live forever in my heart. Mom, Merlyn and I will continue to do the things your loved; fishing, camping, family gatherings, laughing and most of all making sure the people around us know they are loved and respected now matter the circumstances life throws their way and most important we will love unconditional just like you did.

I love you Paul!!

Your sister Laurie

My heart has an empty spot today that will never heal but I will move forwarding knowing you loved me and I loved you unconditional.
