I was sadden and shocked to hear the news of Paul's passing.
He processed my loan and was a great person. I was fortunate to meet him when he visited Overgaard at one time. I send condolences to all his friends, co-workers and his family. RIP my friend.

I am very very sorry for your loss of your beloved Paul. I feel privileged to have known Paul for even the short time I did. He made a big difference in my life just by his presence and influence. Paul was the closest thing to a saint I ever met. He makes me want to strive to be a better person in every area of my life. We should all try to be of that mans caliber, he really set the example as Christ did. I’m positive he is with our Lord. After Saturday afternoon Mass he would come by and check on me knowing I live very isolated as a retired veteran having PTSD issues from the Middle East wars. Take care brother, everyone will miss u. see u in Heaven
