My sincere condolences to the Family, I worked with Beverly years ago and knew Paul through my Sister Bevely, she was his "Tax Girl" as he always called her....He will be missed for his humour and sincerity....Prayers and Blessings...

There were times when Paul and Michael would get into some kind of a scuffle and my Sister would call me to come over the house and straighten things out beteween the two of them,but as time went on i received no more calls and i only saw Paul at family occasions the last at a remeberence dinner for my Mother and he told me he wasn't feeling that well Paul was tough as nails and walked a rugged road, so rest in peace kid .

Paul, God Bless you. It has been so long since we have seen or talked to each other. Your passing was not a shock to me as our mutual friends kept me in the loop about your health. My heart was broken for you. Our relationship was complicated, crazy but sad. It was a life of he said she said but really it was nothing. You were a good guy, a good father and a great brother to Mike, Cheryl

Uncle Paul, I will always love you.
Everyone is hurting from your absence but I think we as a family can all find comfort in the fact that you are no longer suffering. I find peace knowing you are with my Mom, Sister, Papa, and Aunty Bev. It still doesn't seem real to me. It happened so fast. I will never forget those last conversations I had with you. We laughed, we talked about my mom and how much you
