Please accept my heartfelt condolences. Although I have been away from Leonardsville for 35 years, I have many fond memories of Paul. Most of them from Allen's Garage and the Memorial Day Parades. Paul's booming voice and hearty laugh were a part of my growing up and I admired and respected him. I thought of him as a gentle giant. He could tell a story in a way that always captured my attention. With my father's passing last year, Paul's rememberences of their association were touching, and that ability to tell a story had not changed. Paul will be missed, but he is in God's house now. Please know that he has left a legacy here on earth in the lives he has influenced.
