Karen, Chrissy, Brian, Matt and family,
There are no words that can express how sorry I am to hear about your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Please let my dad know if you need anything. He'll be there in a flash! He was reminiscing with me the other night and was telling me about when he first moved to the neigborhood and Paul would chat with him on the porch. We pray you find peace in the wonderful memories you have with your beloved husband, dad and grandpa.

With heartfelt conolences,
Kelly

Karen, Chrissy, Brian and Matt,

Words can not express my deepest sympathies for all of you and your family. Growing up next door to you guys, he was always a great man, kind and generous. So many of my childhood memories are of all of us playing around the porch or in the yards and watching out for his tomatoes! Loved chatting with him when he was outside on my visit to my dad. He would alsways ask how each and everyone of us was doing and how our kids were. I will surely miss seeing him there sitting on the porch. God bless him and may he rest in peace. Love Amy and Kayla
