    Paul and I have been best friends since 1963 where we worked and hunted together for many of the 53 years that we were friends and brothers We will really miss Paul and the great times we had together. Joy I know
    you miss him but he will be looking down and taking care of you. The Old saying that good guys wear WHITE Hats could not fit Paul any better.

    Dear Joy. So very sad to hear about Paul’s death, he was a kind and patient man who always tried to take care of you first. He never got his chauffeurs hat but he deserved one. I know how much you will miss him.

    Love, Joan
