    I’ve know Paul since I was kid and he was a young man going into the service. Many found memories of Paul growing up. He was good to everyone. He loved sports. He like to talk about and remember family and relatives. Dawn and I will miss him. May the lord join him again with Winky, Cad, and Ole in heaven. Thanks Paul.

    Hi, We would like to say how sorry we were to hear about Pauls passing. We had Mr.Paul with us for 15 years (i believe). And I’d like to say he was a Gentleman thru and thru, he had a big heart also. ALWAYS having a smile first thing in the morning and thru out the day. A smile and a strong handshake and a how are you today. I loved Paul, he was one of my favorites. And he WILL be missed. We left St Judes 2 years ago when Duanes son took over. But we’ve seen Paul many times since when we’d stop to visit. Marlene you were absolutely terriffic too Paul in getting his snacks (which we know he LOVED) and for being there for him when he needed. We hope God Blesses You muchly. Again so sorry for your loss.

    I had the pleasure of meeting and knowing Paul many years ago. He was always a gentleman and a joy to be around. Paul was always willing to help out where he could. He was very much a gentleman. He will be sadly missed.
