As a cousin of Paul I wish to extend my Condolences to Ruth
and Family May the Good Lord bless his Soul and may he
rest in peace.
I look upon life as a gift of God I did nothing to earn it. Now
the time has come to give it back I have right to complain.

My condolences to Ruth, Bonnie, Kathy and all the children, grand children and great grand kids. Carolyn and I were neighbors for so many years and watched the kids grow up. Paul and Ruth were the best neighbors anyone could want and we always enjoyed visiting with them. It's never a good time not to be well but the last 2 years have made it especially difficult. I'll remember Paul for so many reasons one of which was our frog hunting days and so many other. I wish you well Ruth as well as all the family. Dick.
