    Kathy and family: I was so sorry to hear about the loss of your husband. I never had the pleasure of meeting you or Paul but I was a dear friend of Helen and she spoke very highly of both of you. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.

    Kathy and family, we are all saddened by Paul’s passing. You and he shared a great love and a wonderful life full of family and friends. Rick and I wish we could be there to help you through this most difficult time. We are so thankful that we were able to spend time with you this past summer celebrating Matt and Sheerin and having time to sit and visit in the days that followed. Paul was the best and there is a huge hole in our family with his passing. May you find strength to make it through the coming days and months ahead when the hurt is so fresh and painful. Sending you hugs and love from Oregon.

    The whole family will miss this kind, funny and hard working Man. Now who is going to
    tell the story about “How poor we were when we were growing up”!!??? (This was one of my favorites!) Can’t believe I just talked with you a week ago – will miss you. Love from
    everyone in Tennessee to all our family as we honor his life.
