Uncle Paul,We will miss you so much. You were very much loved by us. You were a kind man and always there when we needed you. You touched our lives in so many ways. Love, Susan and Danny and Chris
We are so sadden by Mr. Paul's passing. He was a great man and we thought so much of him. I know that he will be missed so much. He always had a smile and a kind word when we saw him. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Mrs. Peggy too. The Lord will see you thru this.
Dad its been a while although I talk to you every day. I miss you so much, I still cry because your not here with me. I can't call you up and hear you say hello. I always asked you when were we going to ba a father and son like we should be and you always replied we will, we will, well Dad it never happen, you ran out of time. I am sorry I left you and moved back home to Mom and know that made you mad and that's why you changed the will but that is OK, I wanted you to know that. I did want to keep it all in the family and try and leave the land for one of my children but you were so bitter, but our Heavenly Father has a better plan and what is so much more important is all the time we had together because I am the only child you had that spent so much time with you and the only one that wanted to. I came looking for you when I was a little boy. I know you didn't want me around but I still wanted you. I still Love you Dad and All is Forgiven. Forever your Son. Til I see you in Heaven Craig and Veronica says Hi and she loves you to.
Please accept our most sincerest condolences in the passing of Paul. I did not know him but knew of him through genealogy research of my wife's family.John Turner
