    Paul you walked this earth quietly and left it oh too soon You touched many hearts with your awesome God given musical talent But most of all you heard Jesus knock at your door and you opened your heart to Him and said yes Lord That’s when all the angels and saints rejoiced and you put a smile on moms face Now Jesus and mom welcome you home with a big embrace Love and miss my little brother

    I knew this man, Paul. He was a very talented guy. He sang and played his guitar and the people would cry. You knew that his song came from deep down inside you could hear it in his voice, you could see in his eyes. I know your walking down streets of gold by the river of life close to your mom and family. Most of all you’re in the presence of the Lord Jesus Christ. Prayers for Cheryl and family

    I knew this man,Paul. He was a very talented guy. He sang and played his guitar and the people would cry. We knew that his songs came from deep down inside. We could hear it in his voice you could see it in his eyes. The holy hills of home called you away to walk on streets of gold beside Jesus because you had finished your testimony that blessed so many people. Prayers for Cheryl and family. We love you both.

    Paul and I always knew that God put us together. I just wish it could have been for longer than 9 years. Paul you are the love of my life. Not only were you the best husband I could have ever asked for, you also were my best friend, my rock when I needed strength, my partner, my lover and my soul mate. You showed me what true love is. Not only by words but by your actions too. You were consistently a man of your word and had the utmost integrity with never compromising your beliefs. The day I met you I found my missing piece. You completed me and made me a better person. You gave me what I needed to grow into a more mature version of myself. We have been very good together, my love. The only way I can even begin to accept this loss is knowing that we will be together again when Jesus brings me home. I will love you forever and a day.
    Rest In Peace my precious husband. 💜
