    Paul will definitely be missed! I loved seeing him come into the clinic. He was always so sweet and friendly. He loved to show off the picture of his grand daughter that he had pinned to his coat. My thoughts and prayers are with his family.

    Paul, you are a true inspiration and friend. You are a model of human grit and endurance. We enjoyed the simple things in life, fishing, bowling, and most of all just talking. Little did we know that we were forming a life long bond back in 1977. Now we have an eternal bond, the sadness will be short, the memories fond, and the company everlasting. My reguards to your family and friends. Later, your friend, Kent
