Uncle Paul I will miss you so much. You were always so much fun to be around when I visited. You and Aunt Avis have always been so loving and kind to all of us kids. It's not going to be the same without you. I only wish you had hung on a little longer so I could have said goodbye in person. Love you Uncle Paul.

Aunt Avis, Uncle Paul will indeed be missed. Many great memories were shared because of this great man. Here is one: it was on the hill in your yard that our daughter skied for the very first time 18 years ago at age 2, on my skis even... And, oh, the stories this man would tell. We love you Aunt Avis and we love Uncle Paul.
