    Paul was a good friend and he loved his family very much. He did everything he could for his family. Growing up with Paul in the church he was a fun guy to hang out with. He has fought hard over the past year and he had a strong faith. He loved the lord and never gave up. My family and I prayed for him and his family daily! I pray that he finds rest and peace and is having a great time up in heaven with his mom and grandma.

    Paul was one of the first people to talk to me when I started working at the restaurant. We immediately had a family connection. The brother I never had. Paul was annoying, crazy, kind hearted, and full of life. The day he married Charlie was the happiest I had ever seen him. He loved her and those kids with everything he was. The world lost a good man, but I know he’s safe and pain free with his mom. He will be forever remembered and forever missed. Rest easy, brother.
