I knew Paul for over 50 years. He was a kind and gentle man who always had a sweet hug and kind word. There was no doubt where his priority lied–it was his family. In the 50 odd years I knew of Paul, I never heard of him getting into mischief or trouble, He was steady and faithful. You led a good life, Paul. You leave behind a legacy any man would envy. You will be missed.
Carol and Family, our heartfelt sympathy is sent to your family in your loss of Paul. He was a wonderful man and an exceptional person. Please know you haven’t lost someone when you know where they are. We pray for God’s all-sufficient grace to be showered over your family and the God of all peace comfort you all as only He can. Love and prayers, Tommy and Sandra Ryan
