Heaven certainly has changed-guarant eed he's up there convincing someone to "fix" him supper, splitting his napkin in half, & offering the food off his plate.
I'm going to miss the phone calls about gas prices, even though I don't drive a car. I will miss the request to not go back to Chicago & to move home... even though moving back in with my parents at 32 is a bit unrealistic. The trips to drop me off to the bus only so he could see me that extra mile down the road. He would go that extra mile for anyone.
I will miss his voice, him calling me Baby Girl (even though that Southern accent should have faded years ago), & I will miss the week old candies in his pocket that he gave me every time I saw him. So Grandma, please don't forget them on Sunday's when you go to Meijer.
NASCAR will still be on the tv on Sundays, Shelvy Lynn will still get yelled at to be quiet, & someone will get yelled at to shut the front door.
Love you Papa

He was an excellent Neighbour. Always watched out when someone was in need. He will be very missed by the entire neighborhood. Many times he helped me when my car was stuck in the snow. A kind and gentle man. A wonderful human being. God Rest Your Soul Paul. I know he is holding you right now. Pray for us!

Papa was the greatest grandpa a person could ask for. We are so grateful for the way he took on Gabby as another grandchild and "mexibilly". He was a great man and had a big heart. We will miss him dearly.

We are so sorry to hear of Paul's passing. He was a such a special person. Paul was a loyal friend and a true gentleman - he will be greatly missed.
