    My condolences to you and the kids. Hearing the news was difficult. I didn’t get to know Paul as personally as some but the impact he had in the few conversations with me and my son were a blessing. We bonded over the relationship the Bradon and my son had, I remember the first thing he said when he introduced himself was that he was my son’s other parent lol. He had a big heart and his love for God showed so brightly. It was an honor knowing him and the family. My prayers are with you!! Rest In Peace Paul

    I am a high school classmate of Paul Ford, and have been a fan of his encouraging smile and positive attitude for decades! He was a fighter - even way back in the Fredericksburg Christian High School weightlifting days! So sad to hear of his passing, but so happy to know he is with Jesus, completely whole, with a new heart and a new body! May God comfort his wife and children in this terribly difficult time.... Prov 3:5-6

    I am a high school friend of Paul’s, and we kept in touch throughout the years. He was a fighter, even way back in Fredericksburg Christian High School, where we lifted weights together! So sad to hear of his passing, but we know he is safe in Jesus’ arms and has a new heart and a new body! May God comfort his family....
