Judy, Jeff, and Family. God bless you in your time of need. I first met Paul in 1978, He and I became friends and soon started working together. Paul was one of the finest carpenter, electricians, concrete finisher, etc. As with any friendship Paul and I had our ups and downs but always remained friends. The loss of Paul is loss to many people whose lives he touched. I always enjoyed setting at Western Hill drinking coffee and shooting the breeze with Paul. God Bless you buddy you will always be a good memory for me.
