The pain is unbearable, the questions that spin in my head and the anger that he was taken so sudden. But none of which he would want us to struggle with nor will it bring him back. He was the best daddy a girl could ask for hands down one of the hardest most genuine guys you will ever know. If you had the pleasure to spent time with him let the loud laughs, happy smiles and long stories he shared stay with you forever. Rest easy ol hippie you were one of a kind and I love and miss you terribly.

Love, daddy’s little girl


Uncle Paul. I only remember good things about you. My Uncle Paul was usually pretty quiet, but when he did talk it was usually to be funny. You were always sweet on us girls. Never the disciplinarian when us cousins got together... Always present and apart of what was happening even if it was quietly sitting watching tv.

I wish you had more time with your girls and grandbabies because you've always been their rock. Their one constant that never changed no matter what went on in their lives. Even though we know God has his plan for everone and that it was your time to meet him, the sorrow in our hearts for the loss we feel is hard to let go of. I can only pray for your girls that with each passing day the sorrow fades and only the fond memories and love remain.

Love you Uncle Paul, as so many others did.
