During those school days, many years ago, God favored our family when Paul, Gloria and Mr. & Mrs. Hawks moved in across the street from us. It took about thirty more years and a gifted soul-winner to point me toward the source of their serene, well-mannered neighborliness. Finally, I understood. Our days here are so few - as a vapor. I'm sad to learn of Paul's passing, for Lorraine and all of his family who live with his absence here every day. May God's grace be upon you all.

Lorraine, I also just read Paul's story on CNN. I would like to offer my condolence for your lost. There are no words that can heal the broken heart only Jesus can heal that and I am sure Paul is right there near Him offering suggestions to help you. I believe you can still feel his love.

Lorraine, I just read about your husbands story on CNN. I am a chronically ill patient with Progressive MS. I read a lot of health stories and this one touched me for some reason.

I'm only 28, and hopefully have a lot of life ahead of me. Anyways, I wanted to congratulate you on the wonderful husband you chose to live with in this life. God bless you and your sons!

Paul,
I can't imagine turning the page to a brand new year without you here with us. There's not a single day that I don't think of you and miss you. I don't have to wish you joy and peace...I know those are a constant in your heavenly life. We've now gone through your birthday, Thanksgiving and Christmas and it's not getting any easier realizing that you are not coming back. I know I will see you again someday and that brings me comfort. I love you.
Gloria Simmons

Paul...I miss you so much. You are in my heart and in my thoughts every single day. It's so hard without you here but I know you are at great peace in heaven. I know you are with The Lord. Maybe someday I will be able to stop crying but we all lost so much when you left this world. I want to pick up the phone and call you all the time. Thank you for all the memories, treasures and little pieces of yourself that you left behind. You will be forever missed. I love you.

Dear Lorraine,
It is with great sorrow that we write our condolences for your family. He was very sweet and kind to our family when Eileen worked for Hawks Refrigeration. May he find peace and happiness in heaven, as that is where we believe he is now.

Much love with sadness,

We're deeply sorry to have lost Paul, our loyal and wonderful friend. Quiet but very effective in his witness for the Lord. He touched so many lives because he was humble and dedicated to God's work. I want to be more like him. He gave of himself so generously and will forever be known as a hero for that final, most generous act. There's a hole left in our hearts, but we rejoice that you're with Jesus. "Well done, my good and faithful servant"...
Lorraine, you and your family are in our prayers always.

Lorraine and family,

One of the most heroic acts of kindness a person could ever display … yes, that is what my cousin Paul Douglas did. His love for God and man was well known and he has proved to be an inspiration to us all.

We may not understand why, but little by little we begin to remember not just that he died, but that he lived.

Our condolences, thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family to help you through the tender days ahead. Life is eternal, love is immortal and death is only a horizon …

Love,
Diane
