    I am praying for your family during this time. I have so many fond memories of Paul from our youth group years at Mt Ararat Baptist Church, youth council, youth choir, mission trips and more. I am thankful that he isn’t in pain and is reunited with his precious Mama, but I know the ache of him not being here with you all. I am so thankful for the promise of Heaven!

    My memories of Paul go back to when he was a child. We used to play tennis together. I watched him grow up into an incredible man. Although I am not a member of his immediate family he will always be family to me in my heart. I send prayers to his family at this time. Paul always had great faith in God and that's how he lived his life. Rest in Peace Paul
