We just learned of Paul’s passing and our hearts are very saddened by this news. Our thoughts are with his family and friends and all those who were touched by him. His guidance and expertise will always be remembered, as well as his infectious smile. He was truly one of a kind.
When someone you love becomes a memory, the memory becomes a treasure. Paul most definitely was a treasure.

I am very sorry to hear of Paul’s passing. May he be free of his illness and playing the saxophone as he did in high school. He was great guy.

I am truly sorry for your loss. When we are faced with unbearable pain, we can find comfort in the hope found in the Bible. God promises to comfort us in all our trials. (2 Corinthians 1:3,4) He promises that those who have fallen asleep in death will have the prospect of living forever in paradise. “And I have hope toward God, which hope these men also look forward to, that there is going to be a resurrection.“ (Acts 24:15) There will be a resurrection, and those who are brought back will not worry about sickness, pain, or death. (Revelation 21:4) May this hope comfort your greiving hearts at this difficult time.
