We are so sorry to hear of your loss, Norma. I can only remember meeting Paul on two occasions, once being at Greg's home when he spent time talking with Grandma. I thought that was very nice of him to make over her so. She liked him from the first, and it says a lot for Paul as a thoughtful and caring man. I'm sure you miss him greatly, but if we trust in God, he is now at peace in Heaven. God bless you all and take care of yourself. Love, Steve, Mary, and the Owen Family Steven D. Owen, September 9, 2013 God be with you in heaven. My dear friend of many years. Shirley Williams, September 8, 2013
