May God comfort you all at this difficult time. May he store special memories in your hearts about Paul. I know he has in mine. Paul was one of the kindest and giving person s I've known. I remember him bringing all the stuff to make homemade ice cream to one of out 4th of July parties. He was always good humored and liked to laugh. My heart goes out to all of his family. Rest in peace dear cousin.
