To Sandy and your family and loved ones, your loss will ,and is shared, by all that knew Paul. I took pleasure in knowing him. He took on life no matter how hard it was thrown at him. We all could learn a lesson from this man’s fortitude. I, as all that knew him, will miss him greatly. God bless him and keep him. Rest In Peace Chink. Rest In Peace.
