  4. So sorry to read about Paul’s passing. May God be with all of Paul’s family and friends and give them the strength to get through this difficult time.

  5. Janet,
    I can remember all of the great times that Paul and I had together as we were growing up together. Most were fun, some were serious and a few were things that I don’t care to remember. I do remember hunting together, singing a duet together in your church, soap box racing, go carts, camping and on and on. We were great friends and he was a great uncle to me.
    I regret that I am not able to make it to Ohio for the funeral because of Bonnie’s recent surgery. She is immobile and cannot travel for great distances. Please know that I am there in spirit and love for both of you. Please feel this “hug” from me, and I will give you a real hug in August.
    We both love and care for you.
    Bob and Bonnie
