  • I met Paul at a very difficult time in my life and he brought me a lot of joy and laughter.  We had a very close relationship and I hope that I gave him happiness also.  His faith and love for Regina were very stong and I know that he has moved on to a peaceful and joyful life in heaven.  May he rest in eternal peace.
